ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - The Alaska Court of Appeals is upholding a murder conviction in a case that haunted Anchorage for years.

Seventeen years after 18-year-old Bonnie Craig was sexually assaulted, beaten and left for dead, Kenneth Dion was sentenced to 124 years in prison.

A hiker found Craig’s body face down and submerged in McHugh Creek in 1994. Years went by with few good leads until DNA evidence in 2006 led the investigation to Dion, who was serving time for armed robberies in New Hampshire.

On appeal, Dion argued that the search warrant used to obtain his DNA contained intentional misrepresentations and omissions.

Alaska Dispatch News (https://ow.ly/J3Qfi ) reports that Dion lost his appeal with Wednesday’s ruling.
