SPARTANBURG, S.C. (WJBF) - Todd Kohlhepp is serving life for the brutal murders of seven people and other crimes, but the serial killer is expected back in court.
Several civil lawsuits have been filed against Kohlhepp.
Kala Brown is among those suing him.
The young woman was held captive by Kohlhepp for more than two months after he shot her boyfriend, Charlie Carver, to death.
Spartanburg County deputies found Brown chained up in a storage container on property that Kohlhepp owned near Woodruff.
She was rescued in November 2016.
Brown filed a lawsuit against Kohlhepp and his late mother Regina Tague.
The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages from Kohlhepp for medical expenses, attorney fees and other expenses.
Spartanburg County Sheriff Chuck Wright has said Brown would receive reward money offered for information leading to the arrest of the quadruple murders at Superbike Motorsports.
The killings had gone unsolved for 13 years until Kohlhepp’s arrest and subsequent confession.
Kohlhepp is serving seven consecutive life sentences.
In May 2017, he pleaded guilty to murdering seven people over 13 years, as well as kidnapping and sexually assaulting Brown.
The hearing is scheduled for Wednesday afternoon.
