Salcha man charged with killing landlord

Posted: Monday, January 18, 2010

FAIRBANKS - A Salcha man has been charged with first-degree murder in the death of his landlord.

An arrest warrant was issued Thursday for 31-year-old Joshua Whiting after he allegedly confessed to the crime in a conversation recorded by the woman with whom he shared the cabin. Alaska State Troopers later took him into custody.

The landlord, 54-year-old David McEachern, was found in a pool of blood in early December. He had been shot in the back of the head - information Troopers did not reveal until charges were filed.

Court records include no motive for the killing.
