FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) - A Barrow couple has been arrested on charges of second-degree murder in connection with the death of a 37-year-old Fairbanks man.

Alaska State Troopers say 39-year-old Abraham Stine of Barrow and his 31-year-old girlfriend, Dominique Vasquez, also of Barrow, were taken into custody Wednesday at Fairbanks Correctional Center. It’s unclear if Stine and Vasquez have attorneys.

The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner (https://is.gd/u9lyyX) reports troopers were notified early Wednesday about a disturbance at the Extended Stay Hotel in Fairbanks.

Officers found 37-year-old Wesley Lord dead inside a room at the hotel. Troopers say Lord had injuries consistent with blunt force trauma.

According to troopers, Stine assaulted Lord and Vasquez tried to cover Lord’s mouth so he couldn’t be heard.

Troopers say an autopsy will be conducted by the state medical examiner’s office.
