Hundreds of Alexandria residents gather at a vigil after Lenny Harris disappeared in September. Police in Prince George's County, Md. and Alexandria, Va. found Harris's body in a 25-foot-deep well in Ft. Washington, Md. Jan. 26.

One of three men suspected of killing Northern Virginia community activist Lenny Harris is being held without bond following his preliminary hearing earlier today.

Linwood Johnson is charged with first-degree murder in the death of 53-year old Lenny Harris of Alexandria.

Harris was a businessman and an advocate for the underprivileged. He was first reported missing in September -- and his body was found in a well in Fort Washington, Maryland months later.

Johnson must be indicted by March 23.

Police say Harris was shot to death during a robbery. Two other suspects, 20-year-old Ivan Newman and 26-year-old Tyrone Lewis, are still awaiting their preliminary hearings.
