ANCHORAGE (AP) -- The prosecutor in a high-profile murder case in Anchorage has withdrawn from the trial, due to health problems.
Mary Anne Henry has been the lead prosecutor in the trial of Joshua Wade. Wade is charged with murder in the death of Della Brown, who was found dead in Spenard on September 2, 2000.
Henry is withdrawing due to persistent respiratory problems. She said she will be available to advise the new team on the case, assistant attorneys Marcelle McDannel and Keri Brady.
Henry will return to her duties as head of the Anchorage district attorney's violent crimes unit.
