Man faces new charges of attempted murder

SITKA, ALASKA A Sitka grand jury has re-indicted a man on charges of attempted murder in the first degree.
47-year-old Thomas J. Kito was originally indicted last fall for stabbing a friend in a drunken brawl, but Kito’s defense lawyers found irregularities in the grand jury proceedings, and the DA later withdrew the indictment.
However, the faulty indictment does not invalidate the case. Prosecutors last Friday (5-15-09) brought the matter before a new grand jury, which returned new indictments of assault in the first degree, as well as attempted murder.
