June 20, 2017

(Anchorage, AK) – On June 9, 2017, an Anchorage jury found 24 year old Timothy Alex Lundgren guilty of a February 2016 home invasion in West Anchorage. Following nine days of testimony, the jury found Lundgren guilty of one count of robbery in the first degree and one count of burglary in the first degree. The jury found Lundgren not guilty of manslaughter in relation to the death of Loren Douglas.

Prosecutor Arne Soldwedel presented evidence that Lundgren and Douglas attempted to forcibly take drugs and cash from the residence but were foiled in their attempt by an armed resident. Douglas and Lundgren were both shot in the attempt. Douglas died at the scene but Lundgren survived and fled. He was apprehended six days later at an apartment at East 24th Avenue in Anchorage. Anchorage Police Homicide Unit Detective James Estes led the investigation which led to the identification of Lundgren through a Crime Stoppers tip. Lundgren was arrested on February 24, 2016 and has been in custody since that time.

Superior Court Judge Michael Corey presided over the trial and scheduled sentencing for October 16, 2017. Lundgren faces a sentence range of five to nine years for the robbery and zero to two years for the burglary. Lundgren is in the custody of the Department of Corrections and will remain there until his sentencing.
