An extradition hearing scheduled today for Charles Severance, the man police want to question about three high-profile killings in Alexandria, has been cancelled pending his decision on whether or not to fight extradition to Virginia.

Severance, currently jailed in West Virginia, was served a warrant from Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe on Wednesday of last week, seeking his extradition to Loudon County to face a weapons charge.

A judge has given him seven days to respond to the warrant.

An attorney representing Severance says his arrest in Wheeling was a "sham." The prosecutor there says the 53-year-old is a suspect in three high-profile murders in Alexandria over the last decade — Realtor Nancy Dunning, who was the wife of then-sheriff Jim Dunning, transportation official Ron Kirby and music teacher Ruthanne Lodato.

Alexandria police say bullet fragments found at the three murder scenes were similar, although they have not charged anyone with the murders.
