(KSL News) A day after pleading publicly for more prosecutors, Salt Lake County District Attorney Lohra Miller has snatched enough funding from the Salt Lake County Council to hire four more attorneys.

Miller says the increase in staff will help her office deal with the county's rising criminal caseload.

She had requested an extra $3 million to hire up to nine new prosecutors and 31 additional employees.

Miller will have to settle for $1.3 million.
