Steven Lee Sanchez was initially listed as a person in interest in the death of 29-year-old Steven Norman, who was found with a gunshot wound to the head in a home near 2200 West and 4400 South Thursday night.

Sanchez was arrested Tuesday afternoon in Farmington, New Mexico by New Mexico State police and the Farmington Police Department. Taylorsville police announced they received arrest warrants Tuesday night for Sanchez and a second person of interest, Rodrick Travis Dejolie. They were both charged with murder and aggravated burglary.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Dejolie or on the Steven Norman homicide can call Taylorsville police detective Jason Huggard at 801-743-7000.

Neighbors said Norman worked installing stereo systems and was known for working on cars. For the most part, neighbors said Norman and his wife were friendly, but that they didn't know them well. One neighbor reported that Norman and his wife once dropped off a gift bag when they learned the neighbor's son was going to become a father.
