Alexandria Police Chief Earl Cook has called Charles Severance the "primary focus" of an ongoing triple-murder investigation.

Charles Severance, the man wanted for questioning in three slayings in Alexandria, has been indicted on an unrelated gun charge in Loudoun County.

A grand jury in Loudoun County is indicting 53-year-old Severance on one count of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. If convicted, he would face a mandatory minimum sentence of two years.

Police in Alexandria have said they are focused on Severance as they investigate three unsolved slayings: one in 2003, one last year and one this year. He has not been formally named as a suspect.

Severance's lawyer says the gun charge is a sham to hold him while police continue to investigate the Alexandria slayings.
