FAIRBANKS — A Circle man who was badly beaten last month has died.

John Alexander was seriously injured Jan. 12 and was medically evacuated from the Steese Highway community because of his injuries, including multiple broken bones and brain hemorrhaging, according to the criminal complaint against the Fairbanks man accused of beating him.

Alexander was taken to Alaska Native Medical Center in Anchorage.

Alfred Harold Woods, 42, is being held at Fairbanks Correctional Center without bail on an assault charge in connection with the beating.

Because the incident is still under investigation, Alaska State Troopers spokeswoman Megan Peters declined to say whether additional charges against Woods are being considered.

Contact staff writer Sam Friedman at 459-7545.
