ANCHORAGE (AP) -- Jon Woodard, the man serving a 66-year sentence for the 1992 murder of a Loomis guard at an Anchorage Carrs supermarket won't have to serve extra time for the robbery that precipitated the killing.
Judge Karen Hunt on Tuesday sentenced Woodard to seven years for the robbery, but made the time concurrent with Woodard's murder sentence.
Woodward was convicted in 1993 of killing armored car guard Terry Becker.
However, Hunt also gave Woodard seven years of suspended time, which means he can be returned to prison if he is released on probation and violates the conditions of his release.
Sentencing for the robbery was delayed when Hunt concluded that the robbery was part of the murder and should not be sentenced separately. The prosecution appealed her decision and won.
