Anchorage police seek suspect in fatal beating
Anchorage police are seeking a 39-year-old man in connection with a fatal assault and injuries to two others.
Police announced Monday that Kenneth Moto is charged with manslaughter in the death of 36-year-old Daniel Stewart.
Investigators say Moto got into a fight at about 3 a.m. April 19, a Saturday, with 27-year-old Lavon Kittick on the sidewalk in front of the Panhandle Bar and struck her, Stewart and another person.
Kittick suffered a broken jaw.
An officer flagged down by a pedestrian found Stewart in front of the bar on west Fourth Avenue.
Stewart was taken to a hospital, and a day later, placed on life support. He died April 22, three days after the assault.
Police are seeking witnesses in the incident and information on Moto's whereabouts.
