ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - A 22-year-old Anchorage man has been arrested for second-degree murder after police found his girlfriend dead from a gunshot wound.

Police in a release say Joshua Almeda also faces weapons misconduct and theft charges in the death of 20-year-old Breanna Richelle Moore.

Officers responding to a 911 call about 12:30 a.m. Thursday at a South Anchorage home found Moore dead from a single gunshot wound to the head.

Police took Almeda in for questioning early Thursday morning and arrested him after a preliminary investigation.

Online court records indicated charging documents were being prepared late Thursday morning. No attorney was listed for Almeda.
