Two teenage boys charged with shooting a 14-year-old girl in the back of the head and leaving her wounded in a ditch lured her to the spot in a small Utah town with a plan to rob and kill her, prosecutors said.
In a story Feb. 18 about a man charged with murder who has waited nearly 10 years in jail without a trial, The Associated Press misspelled the first name of the victim's brother. His name is Malcolm Reaves, not Malcomb Reaves. The AP also erroneously reported what Reaves said about the trial's delays. Reaves did not say that it's wrong for the suspect to wait nearly a decade. He said he understands that some people say such a wait is wrong.
