ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - A 26-year-old Quinhagak (KWIN’-uh-hawk) man is being held without bail in the death of a woman found earlier this month in the western Alaska village.

The Anchorage Daily News (https://bit.ly/1mwIZI7) reports 26-year-old Harold Smith is charged with first-degree murder and evidence tampering in the death of 25-year-old Lisa Johnson.

Johnson’s body was found Feb. 3 off a trail near a new runway at the village airport.

Investigators interviewed Smith on Monday and arrested him.

Troopers say Smith and Johnson had a fight at another site and that Smith killed Johnson, moved her body and tried to hide it by covering it with brush.

Smith was jailed in Bethel about 71 miles southwest of Quinhagak.
