SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) - The assets of a South Carolina real estate agent facing seven murder charges have been frozen at the request of a woman who sued him after being found alive and chained on his property.

Media outlets reported that Circuit Court Judge Roger Couch on Thursday appointed Greenville attorney Reid Sherard to watch over Todd Kohlhepp’s property.

While Kohlhepp is in custody, he won’t be able to sell any assets.

Authorities say Kohlhepp killed four people in a Spartanburg County motorcycle shop in 2003 and killed three other people at his home in 2016.

Kohlhepp is being sued by a woman found chained inside a shipping container in November.

Kohlhepp has a court-appointed attorney. There are questions whether the state should pay for his defense. That will be taken up later.
