ANCHORAGE -

A Wasilla man has been charged with murder and attempted murder, after Alaska State Troopers say he stabbed two people at a home where he was living, leaving a woman dead and a man critically injured.

In an AST dispatch released Monday evening, troopers say 19-year-old Kenneth Adams was arrested in the death of 66-year-old Wasilla resident Mollie Ragonesi. Troopers were called to a Pioneer Peak Drive home at about 5:20 a.m. Monday by a report of the double stabbing.

“Investigation revealed (Ragonesi) was deceased at the scene from apparent stab wounds,” troopers wrote. “Another adult male was critically injured and transported by (emergency medical services). He is reportedly in stable condition.”

Although the case was initially reported by troopers as a death investigation, with the injured man taken to Mat-Su Regional Medical Center, more details subsequently emerged.

“Based on the investigation, it was determined (Adams) had set fire to his bedroom in Ragonesi's residence where he lived,” troopers wrote. “Adams then stabbed Ragonesi and the other male multiple times before he was subdued by another male in the residence.”

AST spokesperson Megan Peters says nothing further on the case is available Monday evening, as the Alaska Bureau of Investigation continues to examine what happened.

Adams faces one second-degree count of murder, as well as one first-degree count each of attempted murder and arson. He was taken to the Mat-Su Pretrial Facility and held on $500,000 bail, with a court-approved third-party custodian required for release.
