Judge Denies Gag Order In Severance Case

Play associated audio

A Loudoun County judge is rejecting a request for a gag order from a man wanted for questioning in the shooting deaths of three Alexandria residents.

Charles Severance is in jail awaiting trial in Loudoun on an unrelated firearms charge. His attorney filed a motion to bar lawyers and police in that case from talking to the media.

However, the judge said at a hearing that there's no need for a gag order and that no one has said anything that would taint a jury pool.

Alexandria police have said they want to ask Severance about the unsolved shooting deaths of three city residents, dating back to 2003. Severance has not been charged in those shootings, and police have not named him as a suspect.
