Ester man charged with attempted murder
FAIRBANKS, Alaska (KTVF) - An Ester man is charged of attempted murder in the first degree today (Wednesday), after repeatedly ramming his Ford SUV into another driver then shooting a semiautomatic rifle at the vehicle.
The Fairbanks District Attorney’s office charged 34-year old Anthony Lee Frey with the incident where he faces 99 years imprisonment.
An adult female was the sole occupant of the vehicle rammed and shot by Frey, and was not injured during the incident. A preliminary report revealed that the female driver was rammed multiple times by the Ford SUV driven by Frey, where he then repeatedly shot a semiautomatic rifle at the Jeep driven by the adult woman. When Troopers began efforts to locate the Ford SUV and driver by searching the area, Frey called Troopers to report he had run a vehicle off the road. When Troopers responded and conducted an investigation they noticed Frey made incoherent statements as to why he rammed and shot at the Jeep, however, there is no clear connection between the drivers.
Frey faces additional charges include Misconduct Involving Weapons in the First Degree, two counts of Assault in the Third Degree, Criminal Mischief in the Third Degree, and Reckless Endangerment. Frey is currently being held by the Department of Corrections on $500,000 bail. His next court date is a preliminary hearing on January 4 at 3:15 p.m. at the Rabinowitz Courthouse in Fairbanks.
