Bannister, Wyatt & Stalvey attorney Alex Stalvey appeared in court yesterday representing Kala Brown, a woman found chained inside a shipping container on the property of suspected serial killer Todd Kohlhepp in Woodruff, SC. Brown has filed a lawsuit against Kohlhepp, accused of murdering her boyfriend and kidnapping her. In yesterday’s hearing, Stalvey and co-attorney David Wyatt asked the judge to set up a receiver of Kohlhepp’s funds and property.
“Because of outstanding debts on at least one of these properties, Kohlhepp’s incarceration, and the filing of an illegal Power of Attorney in the name of Regina Tague for Kohlhepp, these properties are in danger of being lost or materially impaired,” according to a court document.
Setting up a receiver of Kohlhepp’s funds and property in lieu of his mother helps ensure money is not be squandered or hidden away before Brown and other victims have access to it. The judge appointed Reid Sherard with Nelson, Mullins, Riley, and Scarborough law firm as the receiver of funds and removed Kohlhepp’s mother as his Power of Attorney.
“She is doing well, as good as you can expect,” shares Stalvey, managing partner at Bannister, Wyatt & Stalvey. “She is making progress and we are hopeful.”
