ANCHORAGE — A grand jury has indicted a second suspect on murder charges in the death of man found on a rural Anchorage road.
Anchorage police said a warrant has been issued for the arrest of 19-year-old Riek William Gat in connection with the death of 22-year-old Michael Mitchell.
Police are seeking the public’s help in finding Gat.
The indictment charges Gat with first- and second-degree murder in the case.

An 18-year-old man, Kutay Bangout, also is charged with first- and second-degree murder in case. He was arrested two weeks ago on a theft charge and remains in custody.
