ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Late Friday afternoon, a man accused of killing his wife to protect a fraud scheme changed his plea.
As part of his plea agreement, prosecutors said William "Mike" Dixiano told police where his wife, Angela Dixiano's, remains were located. Angela had been missing since April 2010. Prosecutors believe Dixiano killed her when she threatened to reveal that he was stealing thousands of dollars from a man who was receiving payouts from a trust. Her remains were found near mile 86 of the Glenn Highway last week.
That information of her whereabouts was in exchange for dropping the rest of his charges including first-degree murder. Dixiano plead guilty to second degree murder and theft at his change of plea hearing.
Dixiano's sentencing hearing is set for August 31st.
