Update: Suspect indicted; Homicide Investigation; 700 block Klevin Street

Update 11/13/19 @ 5:15 PM:
From the Attorney General’s Office:

On November 13, 2019, an Anchorage grand jury indicted Chue Yang for the murder of his wife, Nancy Xiong. Specifically, the grand jury indicted Mr. Yang for Murder in the First and Second Degree. The indictments stem from an incident that occurred on November 03, 2019, in which Nancy Xiong died of a gunshot wound to the head.

Mr. Yang was originally charged on November 03, 2019 with Manslaughter and Criminally Negligent Homicide. Today, the grand jury elevated those charges to Murder in the First and Second Degree, both of which are punishable by up to 99 years in prison.  Mr. Yang’s bail is currently set at $200,000 cash performance with an additional requirement of a third party custodian. 

The indictment is not evidence of guilt and the defendant is innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.  Mr. Yang is expected to be arraigned on the increased charges in Superior Court on November 15, 2019.

Update 11/4/19 11:00 AM:
Next of kin procedures are complete. The victim has been identified as 29-year-old Nancy Xiong.
