Bail unchanged for father of Tanana man accused of killing 2 State Troopers

FAIRBANKS - Bail remained unchanged this afternoon for the father of the Tanana man who allegedly shot and killed two Alaska State Troopers.

58-year-old Arvin Kangas' bail was set at 7,500 dollars in his misdemeanor assault and driving without a license charges in connection with the shooting.

Family members of slain trooper Sgt. Patrick "Scott" Johnson were present in the bail hearing; his wife asked the Judge not to lower the bail for either of the charges.

Kangas will have another bail hearing Monday in Fairbanks Superior Court for his felony charges including tampering with physical evidence.

Those charges were added after an investigation revealed he and his son, Nathanial Kangas, allegedly moved the bodies of the two troopers and their guns after they had been shot.

The elder Kangas remains on a no bail status for those charges.
