Alaska city sues man convicted of killing 2 officers

JUNEAU, Alaska -- The man convicted of killing two police officers in the southeast Alaska community of Hoonah has been sued.
John Marvin Jr. was sued by the city of Hoonah earlier this year as part of a wrongful death case brought by the widow of one of the officers.
Marvin was sentenced earlier this month to two consecutive 99-year prison terms in the deaths of Hoonah Police Sgt. Anthony Wallace and Officer Matthew Tokuoka. Tokuoka's widow last August sued the city, claiming, among other things, that the city had breached its duty in training and supervising Wallace and others on the police force in their dealing with violent or mentally ill individuals.
Haley Tokuoka has requested a jury trial. No court dates have been set yet.
