Monday will be the last day on the job for Anchorage Police Chief Mark Mew, who has led the state’s largest city police force since 2010. On Friday he talked about why he's retiring, what faces the city with legalization of marijuana and what comes next in this Q&A.
“It’s my full expectation that my office will retry Mr. Sanders,” said Anchorage District Attorney Clint Campion. “I’ve already spoken with the homicide unit. A paralegal has started working on locating witnesses.”
Emmanuel Mcalister, an 18-year-old accused of attempted murder and arrested Wednesday, was charged with assault in a separate July case after he allegedly punched a woman in the face, according to court documents.
