Phillips v. State

In Phillips v. State, 625 P.2d 816, 816-18 (Alaska 1980), the defendant moved the trial court to suppress evidence, including a knife, obtained in a cabin where Mike Yakasoft and appellant lived and where the victim's body was found. See, 625 P.2d at 816-17. The Alaska Supreme Court held that the Yakasoft's initial consent for the search, which was not withdrawn, "extended to the subsequent entries and the investigators' thorough and probing search." Id. at 818. The court affirmed the trial court's denial of Phillips' motion to suppress. See id.
