ANCHORAGE, Alaska — An arrest warrant has been issued for a 27-year-old man suspected of a fatal stabbing at a Fairbanks apartment.

Greg “Troy” Beasley is charged with first-degree murder and evidence tampering in the death of 47-year-old Guy Yazzie.

Beasley is not in custody. Fairbanks police say he is dangerous and likely armed.

Police took a call Sunday night that a man was bleeding inside a home in south Fairbanks. Emergency responders found Yazzie dead.

Yazzie had suffered stab wounds to his heart, torso and legs and defensive wounds on his left arm.

Police recovered a knife they believe was used in the stabbing death.

Beasley is an African-American man, about 6 feet (1.8 meters) tall, 215 pounds (97.5 kilograms), with tattoos and a pierced left ear.
