ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) — Alexandria Police have never referred to Charles Severance as a suspect as they investigate three unsolved, possibly connected slayings in the city.

But Severance has caught authorities' attention, and on Wednesday a West Virginia judge will hear arguments on whether Severance should be extradited back to Virginia, where authorities have said they want to question him as part of their investigation.

Severance is being held on an unrelated firearms charge.

The 53-year-old Severance, a former Alexandria resident, made quite an impression in the city more than a decade ago as a fringe candidate for offices including mayor and congressman.

The current congressman, Jim Moran, even recalls a political forum where Severance lunged at him with the business end of a flagpole supporting the Stars and Stripes.
