    Man arrested on Loudoun gun charge may be tied to Alexandria killings

    A man arrested in West Virginia on a warrant from Loudoun County may be related to a rash of slayings in Alexandria.

    Charles A. Severance, 53, was arrested March 13 in Wheeling, W.V. on a charge of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

    Severance's long, gray beard and some facial features match the sketch released of the man suspected to have killed an Alexandria teacher. Ruthanne Lodato, 59, was shot when she answered her door Feb. 6.

    Investigators have stated that Lodato's killing may be related to two other murders in Alexandria that took place in 2003 and 2013.

    Severance is currently being held at the Northern Regional Jail on a $100,000 bond.

    Who are you taking to ? Voices ?

    You trying to say that having a gun makes you a threat or something?

    I wrap my not yet cold fingers and my insanity around the 2nd amendment and take exception with what you haven’t even thought about yet.
