Dion Convicted of Killing Bonnie Craig 17 Years Ago

A jury in Anchorage has convicted a man of killing 18-year-old Bonnie Craig in 1994.

The Anchorage Daily News reports the jury deliberated just a few hours Wednesday before finding 41-year-old Kenneth Dion guilty of raping and murdering Craig.

Craig’s body was found Sept. 28, 1994, in McHugh Creek south of Anchorage.

Prosecutors say Dion bludgeoned the back of Craig’s head, causing her death.

Dion’s attorney says Craig had consensual sex with his client and that it wasn’t until later that the young woman fell to her death from the cliff.
