Just three months into the year, a recent rash of violence in Alaska's largest city has put the 2019 homicide count on par with Anchorage's deadliest year on record. 

On Monday, April 1,court documents allege 25-year-old Martin Kignak punched, stomped and kicked 27-year-old Tony Susook before Anchorage police found them in a parking lot near A street and Benson Boulevard. Officers attempted life-saving measures, but Susook died. 

Kignak is now charged with murder in Anchorage's 10th homicide this year.
