Man indicted on 2 first-degree murder charges

Posted: Sunday, August 12, 2001

ANCHORAGE (AP) -- An Anchorage man has been indicted in the killing of his ex-wife and her roommate three years ago.

Mark Edwards suffered a gunshot wound to the head at the time of the deaths of the two women. Police say he turned the gun on himself after shooting them.

Edwards suffered brain damage from the wound, and his lawyers said he wasn't competent to stand trial.

But a judge ruled recently that Edwards had recovered enough to stand trial, and he was arraigned Thursday on two counts of first-degree murder. He pleaded innocent.
