Man sentenced in Anchorage murder case

    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - An Anchorage man has been sentenced to 55 years in prison for killing a groundskeeper and security guard at the Anchorage Zoo in November 2018.

    A release from the Alaska Department of Law says Clayton Andrew Charlie had pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in October 2019 in connection with the death of Michael Greco.

    Charlie was sentenced to a total of 75 years, with 20 suspended.

    At sentencing, Superior Court Judge Andrew Peterson considered the statutory sentencing factors in the context of Charlie’s extensive history of mental health issues to include his time spent in treatment inside and outside of institutional settings, his past criminal history, the facts of the underlying crime, the victim’s impact statements, his ability to be rehabilitated, and arguments of counsel.
