Suspect indicted following deadly Downtown assault

By KTVA CBS 11 News 10:23 AM May 15, 2014
ANCHORAGE –

A 39-year-old Anchorage man was indicted Wednesday in connection with an attack that left one man dead and a woman with a broken jaw.

Kenneth Moto faces charges of manslaughter, first-degree assault and failing to stop at the direction of a peace officer, according to the Department of Law. Prosecutors allege Moto assaulted several people outside the Panhandle Bar early on the morning of April 19; punching Lavon Kittick hard enough to break her jaw and knocking Daniel Stewart to the ground. Stewart hit his head on the sidewalk, according to the DOL, and died several days later from his injuries.

Moto fled the scene, and while a tip led Anchorage Police Department officers to his location May 2, he fled again, first by car then by foot after crashing his vehicle in northeast Anchorage. Officers eventually located him by chance May 5 while responding to another call, APD said.

The Anchorage district attorney’s office said Moto faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine if convicted.
