Back in July, 38-year-old Frank Johnson of Nome allegedly stabbed a Nome Police officer with a kitchen knife. In a separate case, 43-year-old Frank Lee of Teller allegedly stabbed and killed 31-year-old William A. Johnson of Utqiagvik. Both cases were granted a continuance and will have further hearings in the coming months.
