A Fairbanks man has been arrested on murder charges in the death of a North Pole resident whose body was found near the Tanana River last year.

Troopers said in a Thursday dispatch that 23-year-old Yelisey Campbell was arrested in connection with the death of 21-year-old Todd Nosal. Campbell was indicted by a Fairbanks grand jury Wednesday on charges of first-degree murder and tampering with physical evidence.

Few details were first released about the discovery of Nosal's body in Fairbanks on April 5, 2015. At the time, troopers said only that his death was being investigated as a homicide.

"Nosal was found after he was shot and killed on the dike near the Tanana River," troopers wrote Thursday. "Investigation determined that Nosal was killed following a disturbance at Campbell's home in Fairbanks."

Campbell was taken to the Fairbanks Correctional Center, where he was listed in custody by an Alaska inmate database Thursday afternoon.
