Two people were indicted last Thursday on multiple charges, including second-degree murder, related to the October of 2020 death of a man near Juneau International Airport, according to Alaska Department of Law.
Joseph R. Schultz, 36, and Marisela Velazquez, 37, were each indicted on charges of two counts of second-degree murder, two counts of first-degree robbery, manslaughter and leaving the scene of an accident on June 24, the department said in a news release.
The death the charges stem from occurred when Dylan Haisler, 32, exited or was ejected from a vehicle and was hit and killed by another vehicle traveling on Glacier Highway on Oct. 6, 2020.
Shultz was arraigned on June 25 before superior court. Velazquez was located on Tuesday by U.S. Marshals in National City, California, and arrested on a warrant, according to Juneau Police Department. Bail was set at $100,000 for both.
If convicted, both Schultz and Velazquez face up to 99 years imprisonment, according to the law department. Schultz’s next scheduled court appearance is on Sept. 15, 2021.
Judge Phillip Pallenberg is presiding over the case. Assistant district attorney Jessalyn Gillum is leading the prosecution.
