Arraignment held for suspect in killing of Juneau woman

Readiness hearing set for Dec. 28.

An arraignment hearing was held on Tuesday for the suspect in the killing of a Juneau woman in late September.

Anthony Michael Migliaccio, 34, was indicted last week on charges of two counts of second-degree murder and a charge of manslaughter, according to court documents released earlier this month. He is no longer being charged with first-degree murder, which he was arrested on charges of in late November after a two-month investigation into the killing of Faith Rogers, 55.

Migliaccio was not present in court, but spoke over the phone from Lemon Creek Correctional Center where he’s being held on a $500,000 cash-only bail. He has pleaded not guilty.

A readiness hearing was set for 11:15 a.m., Wednesday, Dec. 28. However, at this point in proceedings it would not be uncommon for the schedule to change.

Both Migliaccio’s public defender Anna Ambrose and District Attorney Jessalyn Gillum declined to comment after the hearing.
