Alaska State Troopers revealed on Wednesday that they have made an arrest in the homicide that occurred on Christmas Eve of 2018 at a residence on South Outrigger Drive in Wasilla.
According to the AST, a warrant for two counts of Murder II and Manslaughter was granted on Tuesday against 24-year-old Mark Myers and was carried out by troopers with the B Attachment Criminal Suppression Unit at 4:37 pm on Wednesday.
Troopers had responded to the South Outrigger address at 8:53 pm on December 24th in response to a disturbance with shots fired. When they arrived at the scene, they discovered 51-year-old Julian Myers dead from a gunshot wound.
M. Myers, Julian’s son, remained at the scene and cooperated with the investigation, AST reported. Palmer-based investigators took over the investigation that culminated in a grand jury indictment that led to M. Myers arrest on Wednesday.
