Dion Sentenced to 124 Years in Craig Case

A 42-year-old man convicted in a 1994 Anchorage murder case has been sentenced to 124 years in prison. Superior Court Judge Jack Smith sentenced Kenneth Dion on Monday for raping and killing 18-year-old Bonnie Craig.

The body of the University of Alaska Anchorage student was found at McHugh Creek in September 1994.

Dion was sentenced to 99 years for the murder charge and 25 years for sexual assault – the maximum for each count. He was arrested in 2006 after DNA evidence linked him to the murder.

Dion continues to deny he committed the crimes.

As prosecutors in court today said he had not taken responsibility for his actions in the case, Dion called out that he never would because he didn’t commit them.
