Charges: Murder In Fairbanks Result Of False Rape Accusation

 

 

 

” Abraham Stine, 39, punched a man to death in Room 116 of Fairbanks’ Extended Stay Hotel on Wednesday believing that the man had just raped his girlfriend, witnesses told Alaska State Troopers.

  The girlfriend, 31-year-old Dominique Vasquez, admitted to having consensual sex with Wesley Lord, 37, according to a criminal complaint filed Thursday at the Fairbanks Courthouse. But Vasquez convinced two other men present before and at the time of the alleged murder to claim she was raped, the complaint says.

“ Later, Vasquez admitted she lied about being raped by Lord and she had consensual sex with him,” the complaint says. “Vasquez knew Stine has a history of assaulting people, from her personal experience.”

  Stine and Vasquez, both from Barrow, face one count each of second-degree murder. Vasquez told investigating troopers that her boyfriend punched Lord while she placed her hand over Lord’s mouth to silence him.

  The couple was set to make an initial court appearance Thursday in Fairbanks. They were arrested after a trooper investigation early Wednesday morning.”
