ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) – A 34-year-old Anchorage man has been charged with murder and arson in the deaths of two people found in a burning sport utility vehicle.
Anchorage police on Monday arrested Tylan Fely. He also faces charges of weapons misconduct, evidence tampering and misconduct involving a corpse.
Fely has not been arraigned, and online court documents do not list his attorney.
Police say the victims appear to be woman and a girl and that the deaths are “domestic-related.” The victims’ identities and cause of death have not been confirmed.
Police shortly after 11 p.m. Saturday responded to reports of a vehicle fire.
Responding officers found an SUV fully engulfed in a vacant lot on Newell Street a few blocks east of Boniface Parkway.
