Alaskan Man In Utah Court For 1993 Utah Murder

OGDEN, Utah (AP) — A man recently extradited from Alaska made his first appearance in Utah for the 20-year-old murder of a woman who was attacked at a retirement home.

A judge appointed a public defender for 40-year-old Stephen P. Ellenwood, ordered him to remain in jail and set his preliminary hearing for July 31. He didn’t immediately enter a plea Friday.

Ellenwood is held at Weber County jail on a charge of aggravated murder in the beating death of 92-year-old Grace Mae Odle.

He was arrested May 8 in Haines, Alaska, on a Utah warrant.

Authorities say DNA evidence matches Ellenwood to the sexual assault and beating of Odle at an Ogden retirement home. She died six days later at a hospital.

Police say the attacker climbed through an unlocked window early on May 3, 1993.
