ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - An Anchorage officer investigating an arson fire early Monday chanced upon a man wanted for manslaughter.

KTUU reports (https://is.gd/KTSrtw) the officer arrested 39-year-old Kenneth Moto without incident. Moto was found hiding inside a shed about 4 a.m. Monday in midtown Anchorage.

Moto was charged with manslaughter in the death of 36-year-old Daniel Stewart. Investigators say Moto got into a fight at about 3 a.m. April 19, with 27-year-old Lavon Kittick on the sidewalk in front of the Panhandle Bar and struck her, Stewart and another person. Kittick suffered a broken jaw.

An officer flagged down by a pedestrian found Stewart in front of the downtown Anchorage bar.

Stewart was taken to a hospital, and a day later, placed on life support. He died April 22, three days after the assault.
