Joshua Beebe, 36, received a 60 year prison sentence, 25 years suspended, with no eligibility for discretionary parole for the killing of Christopher Seaman. With good behavior, Beebe could leave state custody 35 years later, facing another 10 years of probation.
The sentence was the result of a plea deal reached between the State and Beebe. The victim’s mother said the lighter punishment was an acceptable exchange for avoiding a potentially lengthy and painful trial.
“I don’t want to relive that in a trial setting, so I accepted him to take a plea deal, so I can move on in that part of my life,” said the victim’s mother Terria Walters.

The investigative hearing held at the Captain Cook Hotel Thursday is the first of its kind in Alaska since 1989, following the Exxon-Valdez oil spill and the first field hearing the National Transportation Safety Board has held outside of Washington D.C. in 18 years.
The hearing centered around Hageland Aviation Flight 3153. The Cessna 208 was headed to Togiak from Quinhagak on Oct. 2 when it crashed into steep mountainous terrain about 12 miles northwest of Togiak. Both pilots, 43-year-old Homer resident Timothy Cline and 29-year-old Drew Welty of Anchorage died, as well as 49-year-old passenger Louie John from Manokotak.
