Mt. View murder suspects in custody
Two suspects in a murder in Mt. View last month have been taken into custody after several weeks on the run.
Anchorage Police say they received a tip that Mickee Thompson and Robert Smith were at a mobile home in the 3400 block of Spenard Road.
At 7:29, officers took the suspects in Sosaia Finau's murder into custody without incident.
Thompson and Smith are accused of murdering Finau at an apartment complex in the 4200 block of Mountain View Drive on the morning of Thursday, April 12.
Thompson allegedly used to date the victim's girlfriend, and the shots rang out after an argument ensued at the girlfriend's home.
Thompson and Smith fled on foot, according to witnesses.
Eleven days after the shooting, a caller reported a suspicious person at Valley of the Moon Park included a possible sighting of one of the suspects. The call prompted a large police presence at the park in Midtown. APD later said the report was unfounded.
Thompson and Smith are each charged with first- and second-degree murder.
