Michael McEvoy, 21, now faces heightened charges in the shooting of 19-year-old Mozelle Nalan.
On June 30 at Soteria, an assisted living home for psychiatric patients in the Spenard area of Anchorage, Nalan suffered multiple life-threatening gunshot wounds to the head and neck.
Witnesses said McEvoy is the one who fired the gun.
Nalan was critically injured and placed on life support. Doctors told her family that she was not expected to survive on her own; Nalan was taken off life support late Saturday, July 17.
As a result of her death, the grand jury in Anchorage amended McEvoy’s original first-degree attempted murder and assault charges Wednesday morning. He now faces first- and second-degree murder charges in the death of Mozelle Nalan.
Michael McEvoy will be arraigned in superior court on the amended charges Friday, July 22 at 1:45 p.m.
