FAIRBANKS- After what police had been told was an apparent suicide, an arrest has been made in what authorities now believe is a murder.
A Grand Jury has indicted 39-year-old John McDonald on charges of first degree murder, and murder in the second degree.
Police say these charges stem from a March 20th shooting on Pedro Street at which time they found his wife, Crystal McDonald, deceased from a gunshot wound.
McDonald claimed his wife had shot herself.
According to a release, McDonald was taken into custody today and is being held at Fairbanks Correctional Center.
