No bail for Fairbanks teen charged with murder in Geraghty Fire

No bail for the Fairbanks teenager indicted on multiple charges in connection to a fire that killed two people in January.

18-year-old Conar Groppel is facing one count of murder in the first degree, 3 counts of murder in the second degree, manslaughter, arson, and 6 other charges for the Geraghty Street fire that also displaced nearly 50 residents.

An indictment handed down from a Grand Jury yesterday reads that Groppel "knowingly engaged in conduct that resulted in the death of another person," further stating that he showed "extreme indifference to the value of human life."

Groppel was injured in the January fire and flown to Seattle for treatment shortly after.

Today in Fairbanks District Court, Groppel was asked by the Judge if he had anything to say regarding his bail.

Groppel asked, "Can it be affordable?" and later questioned the Judge as to "What was the point of asking me about bail?" after she denied any bail at all.

Groppel will be arraigned in Fairbanks Superior Court next week where he will enter a plea.
