Description

The jury trial for a man accused of murdering two police officers in Hoonah began Thursday with emotional testimony from family members of the slain officers and the then-chief of the Hoonah Police Department.

It was the first time the jury and public heard the details surrounding the August 2010 deaths of Officer Matthew Tokuoka and Sgt. Anthony Wallace, who were gunned down in Hoonah on Aug. 28, 2010.

John N. Marvin Jr., who was arrested after barricading himself in his house for about 36 hours after the shootings, is on trial for two counts of first-degree murder, one count for each officer shot dead. He could be facing life in prison if convicted.
