Records: Suspect had run-in with slain AK officers

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - August 30, 2010

But assault and other charges filed at the time against John Marvin Jr. were dismissed in December.

The prosecutor assigned to the case declined Monday to say why the charges were dropped.

Amy Williams, an assistant district attorney, says her office is "reeling" from the shootings late Saturday and she isn't prepared to talk about last year's case.

Court documents show both officers were injured in the August 2009 attack after they responded to a call from a woman who said Marvin entered her home without permission. Records say the attack ended when Marvin was subdued with a stun gun.

The 45-year-old Marvin surrendered Monday following a long standoff with authorities.
