(Salt Lake City-AP) -- A woman whose husband was killed in a plane crash last summer off the coast of Alaska has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the estate of the pilot.

Twenty-four-year-old Gordon Moses of Alpine was killed when the plane went down into the Pacific Ocean last summer west of Juneau. Three other Utah men were killed in the crash. Two men swam to safety.

Moses' wife, Tresa Moses, has made a claim of nearly two (m) million dollars against the estate of pilot Gary Ostler, who also died in the crash.

Tresa Moses is asking for a (m) million dollars for the wrongful death and 750-thousand dollars in other claims.
