PAYSON -- New information in the investigation into former Brigham Young University professor Kay Mortensen's murder shows the bank records of his son and daughter-in-law are now under scrutiny.
It appears prosecutors are seeking information about the bank records for Roger and Pamela Mortensen, the son and daughter-in-law of Kay Mortensen, who was found murdered in his home last November.
Roger and Pamela were charged with murder and obstruction of justice in July. Now it appears prosecutors will subpoena their bank records. They say they want to see what the suspects' financial situation was before the murder.
The Daily Herald reports prosecutors filed a petition of secrecy this week in 4th District Court, asking the court to seal those bank records to prevent the public from seeing them. Defense attorneys still will have access to the information. Prosecutor Tim Taylor told the paper the motion is required for prosecutors seeking private records.
On the night of Kay Mortensen's death, Roger and Pamela say they walked into a robbery and were tied up by three men.
The two will be back in court on Oct. 25. Their defense attorney hopes a trial date in the case will be set at that time.
