ANCHORAGE, Alaska (KTUU) - Juneau police have arrested a 30-year-old man for murder after a man was found dead inside a housing facility Wednesday.

Police say Joshua Allen Shaff called JPD on the business line to report a murder on the 800 block of West 12th Street.

Once on the scene, police confronted Shaff outside his apartment, which was adjacent to the one where the body of a 69-year-old Majid Sateri, known as Mark Humford, was found.

Police say the initial cause of death looks to be from multiple stab wounds.

JPD says Shaff was taken to the Lemon Creek Correctional Center and is being arraigned in District Court Thursday.
