Anchorage Man Sentenced for 2016 Murder

April 12, 2021

(Anchorage, AK) – On April 12, 2021, Superior Court Judge Kevin M. Saxby sentenced 30-year-old Trevon Allridge to serve forty-five years for the 2016 murder of William Schmaus.

Allridge pled guilty in August 2020 to one count of murder in the second degree and to two other felony counts for an unrelated 2016 failure to stop in the first degree and assault in the third degree that occurred in mid-town Anchorage.

Allridge faced a sentencing range between 40 and 50 years to serve in prison for the murder and 18 months for the failure to stop and assault. For the murder, Judge Saxby sentenced Allridge to 45 years to serve in prison with an additional 15 years suspended and 10 years’ probation. Allridge was sentenced to 18 months for the failure to stop and assault, which will run consecutive to the murder sentence. In sentencing, Judge Saxby found that the 2016 murder of William Schmaus was akin to an execution.
