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.

53-year-old Charles Severance was arrested on an unrelated firearms charge in Wheeling, W.Va., last week. A judge there has set a $100,000 dollar bond for him.

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