One of three men suspected of killing Northern Virginia community activist Lenny Harris is being held without bond following his preliminary hearing earlier today.

Linwood Johnson is charged with first-degree murder in the death of 53-year old Lenny Harris of Alexandria.

Harris was a businessman and an advocate for the underprivileged. He was first reported missing in September -- and his body was found in a well in Fort Washington, Maryland months later.

Johnson must be indicted by March 23.

Police say Harris was shot to death during a robbery. Two other suspects, 20-year-old Ivan Newman and 26-year-old Tyrone Lewis, are still awaiting their preliminary hearings.
