ANCHORAGE (AP) -- An Anchorage man has been charged with first-degree murder in the strangling death of his girlfriend Friday night, police said.
Edward Soeth, 38, was arrested about 9 p.m., shortly after police found the body of Cynthia Maughs, 44, at their Mountain View apartment.
Police went to the apartment after a friend of Soeth called police and said Soeth told him he had killed his girlfriend.
After police came to the home and found the woman, Soeth came up to an officer at the scene. He was then arrested.
Soeth was arraigned Saturday and was being held in the Anchorage Jail on $150,000 bail.
