Jury convicts man in Anchorage stabbing

Posted: Wednesday, June 18, 2008

ANCHORAGE - A six-year-old homicide case came to a conclusion with the conviction of an Anchorage man.

Roger Wade McKinley on Monday was found guilty of first-degree murder and sexual assault in the 2002 death of Cynthia Henry.

She was found dead under Anchorage's A Street Bridge.

The killing was considered a cold case until a vodka bottle found at the scene with a bloody palm print linked McKinley to the crime.

McKinley's sentencing is scheduled for September.

He faces up to 139 years in prison.

His lawyer plans to appeal the conviction.
