Final suspect in Alaska gang killing arrested in Georgia

April 10, 2019 - 9:10 AM

ANCHORAGE, Alaska - A suspect in the death of an Alaska gang member has been arrested in Georgia.

The Anchorage Daily News reports 37-year-old Glen Baldwin is one of six people charged in federal court in the death of Michael Staton near Wasilla in 2017. Two have pleaded guilty. Three others already were in custody.

Federal prosecutors say Staton and the suspects were members of the white supremacist 1488 prison gang. Prosecutors say gang members killed Staton after suspecting that he stole drugs and a Hells Angels' vest.

Baldwin goes by the name of "Glen Dog." He was arrested Friday in Blue Ridge, Georgia, a town about 90 miles (145 kilometres) north of Atlanta. He appeared in court Monday.

He is charged with murder, kidnapping, conspiracy and assault.

Alaska prosecutors will seek extradition.
