NEW SALISBURY — A murder investigation in Alaska led investigators to arrest a man thousands of miles away in Indiana.

Darin Schilmiller was arrested in New Salisbury after prosecutors said videos and text messages asking for child pornography were found on a murder suspect's phone.

Federal prosecutors in Anchorage allege Schilmiller contacted the Alaska murder suspect, Denali Brehmer, asking her to create and produce child porn and send it back to him.

Police found text messages and videos on Brehmer's phone where Schilmiller told the woman to sexually assaut two minors.

Schimiller is in federal custody and will be extradited to Alaska to face the charges.
