Accused Anchorage Killer Nicholas Showers-Glover Surrenders Peacefully, Pleads Not Guilty At Arraignment

Update October 14th, 2009: Trial finally begins, story published by KTUU. Glover's Alaska Court System record available HERE.


After five days on the run, Nicholas Showers-Glover (pictured at left) surrendered peacefully to Anchorage police officers at the Anchorage Jail approximately 3:30 A.M on Wednesday March 7th. He was accompanied by his attorney, Rex Butler, and members of his family. Butler carefully arranged the surrender, even notifying Channel 2 News. This post combines reports from the Anchorage Daily News, KTUU Channel 2, KTVA Channel 11, and KIMO Channel 13. Update: Only the KTUU link is still active; ADN flushed the story down the memory hole.

Butler says his client decided to surrender after seeing a Channel 2 News story on Monday in which his mother and other family members urged him to do the right thing and turn himself in. "I think after hearing his family tell them they love and support him, and to step out on faith, that's what he decided to do," Butler said.

At his arraignment hearing Wednesday afternoon Showers-Glover pled not guilty to murder in the killing 18-year old Jennifer Olson and attempted murder in the wounding her boyfriend, 22-year old Kori Johnson after they asked him what kind of movie he wanted to watch.

According to charging documents, a witness, his girlfriend, said he was acting strange before the shooting. The witness told police Showers-Glover walked into a bedroom where both victims were watching TV and said he wanted to watch a movie. He then yelled “what's up now” and starting firing the gun. He then escaped, successfully evaded a full-scale police manhunt which included the use of dogs and an Alaska State Troopers helicopter.

Shower-Glovers' bail has been set at half a million dollars, cash only, with a court-appointed supervisor. If convicted, he could face a sentence of up to 99 years in prison. His next court appearance will be a pre-indictment hearing, set for 2:30 P.M. on Thursday.

Too bad the death penalty doesn't exist in Alaska. This case is made to order for it.

  1. a mayne...u need to shut the fuck up cuz u don't know what the fuck is going on. NICK is like a brother to me....fuck that he is my brother and i don't appreciate you putting "TNB IN ANCHORAGE" like you know us or some shit. stick to your John Wayne albums that you know about and don't speak on my boy no more. talking about he deserves the death penalty. you type real hard on the net but i bet you wouldn't be yelling that shit if you were in public. plus, they didn't even put that in the paper that he said, "What's Up Now", you probably heard that from a gangsta movie and suspected that he said that. Keep your fucking mouth shut because you don't know a damn thing. BITCH

  5. I FIND IT QUITE STRANGE THAT PEOPLE WHO DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT'S GOING ON FEEL THEY HAVE A NEED TO SPEAK THEIR MINDS. I KNOW NICK MORE THAN A LOT OF PEOPLE AND THIS IS NOT LIKE HIM AT ALL. LIKE HIS MOM SAID, NO MATTER HOW BAD THE SITUATION MAY SEEM SOMETHING GOOD WILL COME OUT OF IT. AND FOR THE "MAN" THAT WISHES NICK GET'S RAPED IN JAIL, YOU SURE SEEM TO HAVE A THING FOR RAPING PEOPLE SINCE YOU RAPED YOU SISTER SO MANY TIMES THAT SHE STARTED TO ENJOY IT. WHEN YOU START TO TALK ABOUT FOLKS MAKE SURE YOUR SH*T DON'T STINK FIRST.

  6. This is rediculous. Jenn was my cousin and one of my best friends. and no matter why he shot her, she didnt deserve it, the people standing up for him just need to show some sympathy. Do they not realize what was taken away from all of us?

THE GIRL GETS AROUND LIKE A FED-EX TRUNK. SHE'S STRIPPING RIGHT NOW IN PORTLAND, OREGON. I MET HER IN THE CLUB ONE SATURDAY NIGHT AND SHE WAS FROM ONE GUY TO THE NEXT JUST SUCKING AND FUCKING. SHE TOLD ME SHE HAD A KID ALSO, BUT I GUESS IT DIDN'T MATTER WHEN IT CAME TO TURNING TRICKS! SO THERE ARE ALOT OF THINGS TO THINK ABOUT WHEN YOU REALLY SIT DOWN AND LOOK AT HER!

I went to school with him what ever the reason there no excuse for walking in a room and busting some girls brains all over the wall,nick had all the potental to do any thing in life but one choice altered his life for ever encluding every one involved. Trust me he has too live with it the rest of his life but at the end of the day when its all over he still has too pay the piper so for all the people that think they know something about killing it the most soul crushing thing a man can do,rest in peace too the victims and justice has bin served
