Wade Expected to Change Plea in Murder Case

Joshua Wade, the man accused of torturing and killing a 52-year-old Anchorage nurse who lived next door to him will change his plea in the federal capital murder case. Assistant U.S. Attorney Stephen Cooper wouldn’t comment Friday on Wade’s change of plea and sentencing, except to say it would be held in Anchorage federal court on Wednesday. Wade’s trial was to have begun next month. He could have been sentenced to death if convicted in the 2007 killing of 52-year-old Mindy Schloss.
