Judge approves delay Anchorage murder trial

Posted: Friday, August 15, 2008

ANCHORAGE - An attorney for the man accused of killing an Anchorage teenager 14 years ago has successfully called for a delay in his trial, which was scheduled for September.

Kenneth Dion, 39, was charged last year with the murder and rape of 18-year-old Bonnie Craig.

The University of Alaska student last seen on Sept. 28, 1994, leaving her family's South Anchorage home. He body was found that night in McHugh Creek.

Alaska State Troopers said a routine scan of a DNA database of felons matched Dion to the crime.

Defense attorney Lee de Grazia said the case requires quite a bit of scientific analysis.

Dion remains jailed with bail set at $500,000. Judge Patrick McKay will set a new trial date next week.
