Charges against Woods may go from Assault to Homicide.

 

 
The 68–year old man, severely beaten in the Steese Highway community of Circle last month, has died.
 
Officials with the State District Attorney's Office in Fairbanks will decide whether or not to file homicide charges against the 48–year old man they say caused the brutal assault on John Alexander.
 
Alfred Harold Woods is held without bail at the  Fairbanks Correctional Center charged with First Degree Assault.
 
Witnesses told State Troopers that on January 12th, Woods had been drunk and trying to force his way into several homes to get people to fight with him.
 
Troopers say Alexander's injuries included multiple broken bones and brain hemorrhaging.
