Hearing for accused serial killer Kohlhepp scheduled Friday

WOODRUFF, SC (FOX Carolina) –

A hearing for Todd Kohlhepp, a suspected serial killer charged in the murders of seven victims, is scheduled for Friday.

According to online court records, a miscellaneous hearing for Kohlhepp is set for May 26 at 9:30 a.m.

Kohlhepp was arrested after investigators said a woman, Kala Brown, was found chained up on his rural Woodruff property in 2016. The Spartanburg County Sheriff said three victims, Brown’s boyfriend Charlie Carver, and Megan and Johnny Coxie, who went missing in December 2015, were found buried on the land.

After Kohlhepp was taken into custody, the sheriff said he confessed to a 2003 quadruple homicide at Superbike Motorsports.

Sheriff Chuck Wright said he couldn’t comment on Friday’s hearing in order to not jeopardize Kohlhepp’s court appearance.

“I just hope that what happens tomorrow could bring some closure to the families,” Wright said.

Kohlhepp has been indicted on 14 charges by a grand jury. He faces seven counts of murder, four counts of possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime, two counts of kidnapping and one count of criminal sexual conduct.
