The wife of a Palmer man facing multiple child pornography charges was arrested today on sexual abuse of a minor and child pornography charges.


A tip from Microsoft Corporation led the Alaska Bureau of Investigation’s Technical Crimes Unit to arrest 34-year-old Brandon Muston on Jan. 21.


“During laboratory forensic examinations of the electronics that were seized from his residence, the Technical Crimes Unit identified multiple images and videos depicting child sexual abuse,” according to an Alaska State Troopers dispatch posted Monday.


Further uncovered evidence revealed that Muston and his wife, 34-year-old Tabatha Muston, had sexually abused a minor in 2013 and 2014, troopers say. After the evidence was presented to a Palmer Grand Jury, Tabatha was indicted on first-degree sexual abuse of a minor, unlawful exploitation of a minor and possession of child pornography.


Brandon was indicted on 21 counts of possession of child pornography, second-degree sexual abuse of a minor and unlawful exploitation of a minor, all of which are felony charges. He is still in custody, AST says.


Authorities located Tabatha in Wasilla today and arrested her. Her bail was set at $50,000 plus a court-approved, third-party custodian.


The investigation continues, troopers say.
