Anchorage Police apprehend double murder suspect after Snapchat threat

    ANCHORAGE, Alaska (KINY) - The man wanted for a double homicide in Anchorage in January is being arraigned today, along with two people accused of hiding him.

    Anchorage Police say 21-year old Jamal Hall was arrested Saturday morning without incident. He was reportedly tracked down after posting a message on Snapchat threatening anyone who might inform on him. Also arrested at a residence were 23-year old DeVonte Wyche and 18-year old Katelyn Moon, both jailed on charges of hindering prosecution.

    Hall had been indicted last week on first-degree murder charges in the deaths of 20-year old Foriegnne Aubert-Morissette and 19-year old Selena Mullenax.
    A motive was not disclosed, but Aubert-Morrissette was a known member of the Crips gang.

    Hall had been sought since December 1st for allegedly robbing a midtown drugstore. City prosecutors dropped that case now that state prosecutors are bringing murder charges.
