A fugitive sought by U.S. marshals for failure to appear in court on charges including child endangerment is also wanted in Palmer for allegedly attempting to kill his wife, according to Anchorage police.
APD spokesperson Anita Shell says Jeramie Micha Sharp, 34, missed an August change-of-plea hearing. He was charged with endangering the welfare of two children, as well as DUI and fourth-degree assault.
According to Shell, Sharp has also been charged with attempted murder and multiple counts of assault in the Palmer case, which involved him allegedly firing a gun at his wife.
State court records list a reopened case against Sharp involving charges after a July 29 incident including first-degree attempted murder, two counts of third-degree assault and three counts of fourth-degree assault.
Sharp is a Caucasian man standing 5 feet, 10 inches tall and weighing 165 pounds, with brown hair and hazel eyes. Police believe he is in the Mat-Su Valley, and ask anyone with information on his whereabouts to call Anchorage Crimestoppers at 561-STOP or Mat-Su Crimestoppers at 745-8333. Tips can also be submitted to either group at their websites.
