ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - A 31-year-old White Mountain man is charged with first-degree murder in connection with the New Year’s day death of his girlfriend at their home.

KTUU (http://is.gd/9Cpdv7) reports Gilbert Olanna Jr. also was charged Saturday with tampering with evidence and assault in connection with the death of 40-year-old Esther Lincoln.

Authorities say Olanna spent much of the early hours of New Year’s day out drinking before returning home, where he argued with Lincoln.

According to charging documents, Olanna “held Lincoln around the neck for several minutes until she went limp.” Olanna also said he also hit the woman in the face, cleaned up and put clothes on Lincoln before calling a health aide from a neighbor’s house.

Online court records on the case don’t list an attorney for Olanna.
