Nelson found guilty of traffic violation in Chesterfield

CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) - The man facing charges in Henrico County for killing his pregnant girlfriend is found guilty of a traffic violation in Chesterfield County.

Gregory Nelson Jr. was in handcuffs and shackles in a Chesterfield courtroom this morning. He was found guilty of not stopping at a stop sign, which is a $250 fine plus a $62 court fee. A charge of eluding police during a chase was sent to the grand jury.

In March, Nelson was arrested in Florida after police charged that he was the man who killed his pregnant girlfriend Susana Cisneros.

A Chesterfield police officer said in court today he was staked out at Nelson's home on Scotts Bluff when he spotted Nelson trying to leave his home at around 5:30 a.m. the morning of Cisneros' murder.

That police officer started chasing Nelson who ran through a stop sign.

The chase lasted about 3 miles, with an average speed of 80 mph. It reached 95 mph at the end of the chase.

The chase was called off because of the time of day and school starting soon.

The officer involved in the chase identified Nelson in court today as the man he saw at 5:30 a.m. the morning of the murder.

A second charge of eluding police was certified to the grand jury. That jury will be meeting on May 16 in Chesterfield County.

Nelson's wife was in court -- she declined to speak to the media.

Nelson is expected in a Henrico County court for a hearing on the murder charge later this week.
