McAuliffe Approves Extradition Request For Suspect In Three Alexandria Killings

Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe has approved a request asking West Virginia authorities to extradite a man prosecutors have said is a suspect in three unsolved killings in the city of Alexandria over the past decade.

Severance is a longtime city resident and twice a fringe candidate for mayor.
