ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) – Two people found dead in a burned car were the wife and teenage stepdaughter of the man charged in the case.
The Anchorage Daily News reports 34-year-old Tylan Fely is charged with first-degree murder, arson and other counts in the deaths of Cecilia Tuuaga and her 13-year-old daughter, identified by the initials N.T.
Their bodies were found Saturday night in a sport utility vehicle engulfed in flames in east Anchorage.
Fely is represented by the Alaska Public Defender Agency, which did not respond to an email request for comment Tuesday.
