Manslaughter charge arraignment delayed

The arraignment hearing for a man charged with manslaughter has been delayed until Friday.

On Jan. 31st, a Ketchikan Grand Jury indicted 34-year-old Steven S. Cook of Ketchikan for domestic manslaughter and second-degree assault.

The charges stem from an incident that took place last May in Ketchikan. According to the court file, Cook allegedly killed 32-year-old Thomas Guthrie the Fourth with a chokehold.

His arraignment had been set for Monday in Ketchikan Superior Court. The hearing was rescheduled for 2:30 p.m. Friday in Judge William Carey’s third-floor courtroom.
