ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - A 20-year-old southwest Alaska woman was arraigned Sunday in Bethel on a charge of first-degree murder in the death of her uncle.

Kayla Jacob of Napaskiak (nuh-PAS’-kee-ak) is charged in the death of 28-year-old Mathew Beaver in the village 7 miles southeast of Bethel.

KTUU-TV (https://bit.ly/1rOfcft) reports Jacob and Beaver were guests Friday night in the home of a relative. Several adults and a child were present.

The death was reported to a village public safety officer. Troopers reached the village Saturday morning.

Trooper spokeswoman Beth Ipsen says investigators have not confirmed a cause of death and an autopsy was planned.

Online court records show Jacob is represented by the Public Defender Agency, which does not routinely comment on open cases.
