ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Two suspects in a Muldoon home-invasion robbery last month that left two men dead are facing charges including manslaughter, according to Anchorage police.
APD spokesperson Marlene Lammers says Brian Pfister, 19, and Ursula Pico, 21, were indicted by a grand jury Thursday for manslaughter, robbery, conspiracy to commit robbery and burglary. Pico was also indicted for evidence tampering, after allegedly attempting to hide the group’s getaway car.
Maurice T.R. Johnson and Joseph Trantham, both 19, were killed in the early hours of Nov. 10 on the 700 block of Muldoon Road, when 55-year-old Larry James said they entered his house armed, hit him in the face and led him to a bedroom to open a safe. James produced a handgun and shot both men, who fled the home but died outside.
Police say Pfister was a third robber posted outside who fled the scene, while Pico was a getaway driver. The two were taken into custody shortly after the robbery, although Pico was mistakenly granted bail but turned herself in shortly afterward.
