Authorities say a man wanted in Virginia for questioning in three unsolved slayings in the past decade has been extradited from West Virginia on an unrelated weapons charge.
The 53-year-old has been held in Wheeling, West Virginia, since his arrest in March. Virginia authorities sought his return as a fugitive from justice on a firearms warrant. Police in Alexandria have said they want to talk to Severance as part of their investigation into unsolved killings, but have not named him as a suspect.
Severance's lawyer argued that the warrant is a pretext to hold him in relation to the unsolved killings despite a lack of evidence.
