ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Alaska State Troopers say a 31-year-old Palmer man has been arrested in the fatal shooting of a woman in Butte (bewt) south of Palmer.

KTUU-TV (https://is.gd/uA4L9v) reports Benjamin “Ben” Wilson was arrested at 11 a.m. Monday on murder and assault charges in connection with the death of 28-year-old Leticia Faller of Palmer.

Wilson is in custody at the Mat-Su Pretrial Facility. It’s unclear if he has an attorney.

Troopers were notified of the shooting shortly before 10 p.m. Sunday. Troopers say Faller was shot in the head and was flown to an Anchorage hospital, where she died.

The shooting occurred in a vacant lot near Bodenburg Loop and the Old Glenn Highway.

Butte is an unincorporated community at the foot of Bodenburg Butte, about 42 miles north of Anchorage.
