Adam Sullivan Indicted for Murder of His Wife

February 27, 2017

(ANCHORAGE, Alaska) Today, 40 year old Adam Sullivan was indicted for causing the death of Brandy Sullivan on February 16, 2017 at her residence in Anchorage. The grand jury indicted Sullivan on charges of murder in the first degree and second degree.

At approximately 3:58 p.m. on February 16, 2017, the Anchorage Police Department responded to a 911 call from two juvenile females reporting that their mother had been shot. Officers responded to the residence and found Brandy Sullivan, who was deceased from multiple gunshots. Officers determined that Brandy’s husband was a suspect and they arrested him at the Lowe’s store on O’Malley.

If convicted at trial, Sullivan faces a sentence of 25 to 99 years in prison for the murder in the first degree. 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.

Sullivan is in the custody of the Department of Corrections. He is being held on bail requiring $500,000 cash or corporate appearance bond, a $500,000 cash performance bond and a court-approved third party custodian.
