Update on death of St Paul two year old boy

    Juneau (AP) - Authorities say the 2-year-old Alaska boy killed by his guardians on St. Paul Island earlier in December came months after his father strangled his mother.

    Pleas of not guilty were entered for Steven Melovidov and Sophie Myers-Melovidov during court hearings Thursday.

    The couple became the boy's guardians in October after his mother's September death. The mother’s husband, Joshua Rukovishnikoff, was indicted in her death. Court records show he has pleaded not guilty to murder and other charges.
