Lawyers For Charles Severance Call For Gag Order In Gun Charge Case

Play associated audio

Defense lawyers for a man who's been called a "person of interest" in three high profile murders in Alexandria don't want those involved in the case talking to reporters.

Attorneys for Charles Severance have filed a motion for a gag order, according to the Loudoun County District Court. This means lawyers on both sides of the case as well as investigators would be barred from talking to the media.

Severance is currently being held in Loudoun County without bond on an unrelated gun charge and has not been charged in any of the three fatal shootings.

A judge is expected to decide whether to enact the gag order next week and a preliminary hearing for the gun charge is set for June 18.

Severance is a former Alexandria resident. More than a decade ago he ran as a fringe candidate for mayor and Congress. People remember him showing up in all black for debates, complete with dark sunglasses and gloves.
