Alaska man found guilty of first-degree murder
KODIAK, Alaska (AP) – An Alaska man has been found guilty of murder for the November 2015 killing of Steven McCaulley.
The Kodiak Daily Mirror reports Steven Ridenour could face up to 99 years in prison for the first-degree murder charge he received Thursday.
Court records show he was also found guilty of attempted murder, first-degree assault and tampering with evidence.
According to the report, Ridenour and McCaulley were co-workers at a wilderness lodge on Shuyak Island.
District Attorney Stephen Wallace says on Nov. 12, 2015, Ridenour left the lodge on a mail plane after shooting McCaulley 11 times.
Ridenour says he was defending himself when he killed McCaulley.
