ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - A 32-year-old Anchorage man has been convicted of repeatedly stabbing another man to death after chasing him down on foot.

The Anchorage District Attorney’s Office says in a release that a jury found Tidiane Kone guilty of first- and second-degree murder on Friday. He was charged in the August 2012 death of Adrian Beaver.

Kone was also convicted of two counts of assault for stabbing another man, Lovie Houston, who was with Beaver. Houston was treated and released the same night of the stabbings.

Authorities say Kone has several criminal convictions since 2005, including one felony. He was on electronic monitoring as part of his pretrial release in another case when the stabbings took place.

He faces between 20-to-99 years when he is sentenced Sept. 12.
