Fairbanks police say a 35-year-old North Pole man accused of killing his girlfriend impersonated her in text messages for several days.
Nyrobbie Chandler is being held without bail at Fairbanks Correctional Center. Chandler is charged with first-degree murder and evidence tampering in connection with the death of Kaylynn Bishop.
Police say they interviewed Chandler four times between the time Bishop was found dead in early May and his arrest Friday.
According to police, Chandler's account of the week his girlfriend died is that Bishop got home late from work at a bar and later got a call from someone Chandler did not know who picked her up at his house.
Police say phone records show Bishop never received a phone call in that time.
