BREAKING: DNA links convicted killer Michael Alexander to victim in 1987 murder

FAIRBANKS- Biological evidence found on the clothing of 1987 murder victim Kathy Stockholm has come back as a positive match to her convicted killer, Michael Alexander.

According to court documents filed this afternoon in Fairbanks Superior Court, the Scientific Crime Detection Laboratory was able to extract DNA from a semen sample more than 20 years old.

That sample was a DNA match to Alexander, who is currently in jail serving a 198 year sentence for Stockholm's murder.

Today, the District Attorney's office asked the court to dismiss Alexander's ongoing post-conviction relief filing, headed by Bill Oberly of The Alaska Innocence Project.

The documents stated that since DNA evidence could not exclude Alexander as the killer, the filing should be dismissed from court.
