ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - An Anchorage man has been charged with first-degree murder in the death of man in an Eagle River parking lot.

U.S. marshals arrested Aaron Trejo at about 11 p.m. Wednesday outside an east Tudor Road gas station. Anchorage police say he was a passenger in a parked vehicle.

Trejo was taken to police headquarters, questioned and charged with murder, plus failure to appear on felony assault charges.

Police sought Trejo for questioning in the death of 26-year-old Spencer Christian Ballenger, who was found just before 2 a.m. Oct. 30 in the parking lot of the Carrs Safeway grocery store in Eagle River.

Ballenger had been shot in the chest. He died at the scene.

Trejo is being held without bail. Online court records did not list an attorney for him.
