Todd Kohlhepp due in court for civil lawsuit hearing
SPARTANBURG COUNTY, S.C. (WLOS) —
Convicted killer Todd Kohlhepp is expected in court Wednesday afternoon for a civil lawsuit hearing, filed by survivor Kala Brown.
The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages from Kohlhepp for medical expenses, attorney fees and other expenses.
Spartanburg County deputies found Brown chained up in a storage container on property that Kohlhepp owned, near Woodruff.
She was rescued in November 2016.
Kohlhepp accepted a plea deal in May 2017, admitting to killing seven people over nearly 13 years in South Carolina, all while running a real estate business.
He was sentenced to life in prison without parole.
