Convicted Kasilof murder dies in prison

A Kasilof man serving 213 years for the murder of two Kenai Peninsula women more than a decade ago has died.

Alaska State Troopers say 71-year-old Robert Freeman died Sunday at the Anchorage Correctional Center.

The Peninsula Clarion reports Freeman after a night at a bar on July 17, 1998, accompanied his girlfriend and two other women to his secluded cabin.

An argument broke out and Freeman used a handgun to shoot 33-year-old Jean Iwaszko of Kasilof and 28-year-old Tracy Eason of Soldotna.

Sharene Baker Christensen hid in the cabin and survived.

Freeman was convicted in December 1999 of two counts of murder and three counts of felony assault against witnesses. District attorney Dwayne McConnell said at the time it was lucky Freeman’s gun held just four rounds.
