Police investigate deadly Dutch Harbor fight

Police have made two arrests in the beating death of a 55-year-old man at a Dutch Harbor seafood processing plant.

Leonardo Bongolto Jr., 34, of Maple Valley, Wash., and Denison Soria, 40, of Unalaska, were charged with first-degree murder.

The victim was identified as Jonathan Adams, of Vancouver, Wash.

All three men worked at Bering Fisheries, an Unalaska police spokeswoman said.

A passing motorist called police at 11:34 p.m. Tuesday after seeing two men attacking a third in front of a building in the Bering Fisheries complex, the spokeswoman said.

Responders tried to resuscitate the badly injured Adams, but he died at the scene.

The investigation continues, but police believe the victim and one of the accused assailants had a history of conflict.
