ANCHORAGE (AP) -- A Wasilla man has been charged with second-degree murder for an auto accident last year that killed a teenager, Alaska State Troopers said Saturday.
Nathan Strickland, 24, was arrested late Friday.
Along with the murder charge, Strickland faces three counts of first-degree assault.
The charges stem from a motor vehicle accident that occurred on April 28, 1999, on Knik Goose Bay Road.
The accident investigation concluded that Strickland's vehicle was passing in a no-passing zone when he struck an oncoming vehicle.
The other driver, 17-year-old Michael Caldwell, was killed in the crash and a 16-year-old passenger sustained severe head injuries.
The two passengers in Strickland's vehicle were also injured.
