Anchorage police say a body recovered last week is that of missing woman Angela Dixiano, whose husband has entered a guilty plea in her death and told investigators where her remains were located. APD spokesperson Lt. Dave Parker confirmed the identity of the body, which was found near Mile 86 of the Glenn Highway. Dixiano was reported missing early last year, after she was last seen in April 2010. Her body was recovered after husband William “Mike” Dixiano, who was subsequently arrested for fraud and charged with murder in the case, recently reached a deal with prosecutors.

Anchorage police say William "Mike" Dixiano has been charged with and indicted for the murder of his wife, Angela Dixiano, who was reported missing in early January and last seen in April of 2010. Dixiano faces charges of first and second-degree murder, tampering with evidence, and 14 counts of forgery. Mike Dixiano was arrested on fraud charges during the investigation of his wife's disappearance. The indictment says Dixiano killed his wife in April 2010, when she threatened to expose his fraud, in which police say he stole hundreds of thousands of dollars from another Anchorage man. Dixiano's bail on the fraud charges was initially set at $100,000, and prosecutors say the state now hopes to increase that amount in light of the new charges.

It happens every day of the week in courtrooms all over Alaska. Today, in Judge Michael Spaan's Anchorage courtroom, the applicant is a woman with curly black hair, a mother.  The judge is hearing bail applications and arraignments. She's ushered from the spectator benches to a podium, where she swears to tell the truth.  She looks at her son, accused of assault and weapons charges in a robbery-gone-wrong. He wears an yellow jumpsuit, handcuffed to another detainee in the jury box. She is his ticket to bail, which would mean getting out of jail until his trial.

In the last 10 years, Alaska’s Hispanic population has jumped by 51.8 percent, making it the fastest growing minority group in the state. Daniel Esparza, who grew up in Zacatecas, Mexico is in a good position to consider the long view: He’s a Mexican-American who has lived in Alaska for 37 years. To him, it’s obvious what’s drawing people to the Northernmost U.S. state: “It’s adventure and opportunity,” he said. The highlights of the Census data released this week included: -Alaska's Hispanic population was 25,852 in the 2000 Census to 39,249 in the 2010 Census - The number of people who identified themselves as being of Mexican descent jumped from roughly 13,300 to 21,600 - People who identify themselves as Mexican make up 55 percent of Alaska’s whole Hispanic population, followed by  Puerto Rican and Cuban -While Hispanics now make up 5.5 percent of Alaska’s population in 2010, that’s still much less than the 16.3 percent they make up of the entire U.S. population.

It started as a major indictment, one of the biggest indictments ever in Alaska, 219 counts for an elaborate fraud scheme. But Monday, those hundreds of counts were whittled down to just two in a plea deal. Wendy Remington and two others, Ryan Burkhart and Angie Minnick, stole checks out of mail boxes, cars, and homes. The trio wrote bad checks in Anchorage and the Mat-Su Valley and got it away with it for months, but investigators say they became overconfident and with the help of video surveillance they caught up to Remington after she wrote her last bad check.

As we approach the summer construction season, many homeowners are planning for  home improvements. But some renovations get a better return for the dollars you spend. Thanks to Sarah Haltness, a real estate specialist at Dynamic Realty, for her assistance with this list. Home improvement value recovery is really dependent upon the neighborhood standards.

The Air Force believes that it's solved the years-long mystery of why F-22 pilots have suffered potentially dangerous, hypoxia-like symptoms aboard the world's most advanced jet fighter. And the answer is so insanely simple, some Congressmen don't believe it. It's primarily clothing! According to Congressional Testimony by NASA and Air Force experts earlier this month, the problem lies with an inflatable combat vest that was worn -- in combination with rubberized cold-weather survival gear needed for ejection by pilots over cold water.
