ANCHORAGE - A man who killed his friend with a skillet, cut up the body and stored it in a freezer was convicted in Anchorage of second-degree murder and tampering with evidence.
KTUU reports Elmer Seetot faces a prison term of up to 99 years when he is sentenced April 1.
Prosecutors say he hit 38-year-old Terry Jackson in the head with the frying pan in October 2007 during a drunken celebration of Seetot's 21st birthday. They say he dismembered the body and put it in his grandmother's freezer to hide the evidence.
The defense lawyer argued for a manslaughter verdict because Seetot was too drunk to intend murder.
Assistant District Attorney Gustaf Olson says not knowing what your are doing because you are drunk is not a defense.
