Fairbanks Four Hearing

Oct 2, 2015

An evidentiary hearing is scheduled to begin Monday in state court in Fairbanks in the case of 4 local men seeking exoneration from convictions for a nearly 2 decade old murder. George Frese, Marvin Roberts, Eugene Vent and Kevin Pease, men known as the “Fairbanks Four”, were convicted of the October 1997 beating death of 15 year old John Hartman on a downtown street.  Evidence brought forward in recent years points to others being responsible for the killing, and as KUAC’s Dan Bross reports, it will be laid out during the hearing.

Fairbanks got its first major snowfall of the season today (Fri). As usual, drivers are counting on the state to plow and sand highways and some side roads, but budget cuts mean reduced maintenance. As KUAC’s Dan Bross reports, the downsized operation is expected to be tested this winter.
