Anchorage Man Indicted for Double Homicide at Point Woronzof
December 12, 2016
(ANCHORAGE, Alaska) On December 12, 21 year old Jamal Hall was indicted by the Anchorage grand jury on two counts each of murder in the first degree and second degree. The indictment resulted from the double homicide that occurred at Point Woronzof on January 28, 2016 in Anchorage.
At approximately 8:37 am on January 28, 2016 Anchorage Police Department officers responded to a 911 call reporting that the body of a woman, later identified as Selena Mullenax, had been found half way down the trail to the beach at Point Waronzof. Officers searched the area, and also located the body of a man, identified as Foriegnne Aubert-Morrissette, on the beach.
The Anchorage Police Department’s homicide unit has investigated the homicide over the last 11 months. Several witnesses have provided information to detectives which led to the indictment. Allegedly, Hall shot Aubert-Morrissette in the head near the beach then allegedly shot Mullenax halfway down the hill.
If convicted, Hall faces a sentence of up to 99 years in prison on each count of murder. A defendant’s sentence is determined by the judge who must consider the circumstances of the offense, the impact on the victim(s) and the community, and the potential for rehabilitation of the defendant.
The charges in the indictment are only allegations and are not evidence of guilt. The defendant is presumed innocent and is entitled to a fair trial at which the prosecution must prove his guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
Bail was set at $1,000,000 on this case. Hall was indicted last week for a November 26, 2016 robbery at a Walgreen’s Store in Anchorage. A judge issued a no bail warrant for the robbery for Hall last week but Hall has not yet been arrested. The Anchorage District Attorney’s Office and the Anchorage Police Department are concerned that Hall poses a danger to the safety of members of our community. The Anchorage Police are actively searching for Hall.
