(KSL News) Lawyers for a Bountiful teen accused of killing his mother will not appeal a ruling allowing evidence taken during a search.
Police conducted the search last August when relatives of Laura Hauck asked them to do a welfare check. They didn't have a search warrant. At that time they found her body and a number of blood-soaked items.
Lawyers for Jeremy Hauck argued the search was illegal and all evidence found, including the body, should be suppressed.
The judge ruled the search was legal because it was conducted under "emergency aid doctrine."
