Courts: Man Competent to Stand Trial for Three Alexandria Murders

Posted:

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) - A judge has found a Virginia man competent to stand trial in the shooting deaths of three Alexandria residents over a 10-year span.

Judge Jane Roush issued an order Monday ruling that 54-year-old Charles Severance of Ashburn can be tried for murder in the deaths of city residents Nancy Dunning, Ron Kirby and Ruthanne Lodato. All three were shot in their homes: Dunning in 2003, Kirby in 2013 and Lodato last year.

Roush ordered a competency exam after Severance's court-appointed lawyers raised questions about his mental health. The contents of the report have not been released.

Severance is a former Alexandria resident with a history of bizarre behavior as a fringe candidate for political office.

His lawyers are now asking that the trial be moved from Alexandria.
