Charles Severance was arrested in West Virginia on a gun charge unrelated to the charges in Virginia.
The West Virginia Supreme Court is denying a stay of extradition for Charles Severance, the former candidate for Alexandria mayor who is wanted for questioning related to three unsolved slayings in Alexandria.
A West Virginia judge ordered Severance extradited to Loudoun County, where a warrant has been issued on an unrelated firearms charge. Now that state's Supreme Court is denying Severance's appeal for a stay.
Severance's lawyer has argued that the firearms warrant is a sham, and a pretext to hold him related to unsolved killings in Alexandria despite a lack of evidence.
Alexandria Police have not named Severance as a suspect in any of three fatal shootings, which occurred between 2003 and this February. In March, police said similarities between the three murders have prompted them to investigate the murders as a series.
A Loudoun County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman says the office has a 10-day window to pick up Severance and bring him to Virginia.
