ALEXANDRIA, VA. - Charles Severance, convicted in 2015 of murder in the killings of three people in Alexandria, Va., has lost an appeal in state court.

Lawyers for Severance had argued that there were flaws in both his trial and sentencing in the slayings of Nancy Dunning in 2003, Ronald Kirby in 2013 and Ruthanne Lodato in 2014. A three-judge panel of the Virginia Court of Appeals disagreed.

Dunning was killed a decade before the other two victims, and no eyewitness connected Severance to the scene of her death. Severance’s lawyers say that case should have been tried separately from the other two.
