UTAH COUNTY DEPUTY SHOT

PROVO — A Utah judge has denied a request to lower bail for a teenage girl charged with aggravated murder in crime spree that claimed the life of a deputy and her boyfriend. The attorney for Meagan Grunwald, 17, said his client was as much a victim as anyone else, intimidated by the deceased shooter. But prosecutors have said she was an active participant in the events on Jan. 30, driving the car during the pursuit as her boyfriend fired at police and also helping pull off a carjacking. Grunwald will remain in jail on $1 million bail. UPCOMING: 400 words by noon MST.

XGR-UTAH ELECTION CHANGES

SALT LAKE CITY — A compromise bill to overhaul Utah's system for nominating political candidates faces its first hurdle at the Legislature on Monday. State lawmakers and the group Count My Vote announced the deal Sunday afternoon, which they say enables more participation. The legislation preserves Utah's caucus-convention system but allows primary elections as an alternative path to the ballot if a candidate gathers enough signatures. Lawmakers and the Count My Vote group had been squaring off over the caucus system, which Count My Vote argues is difficult to participate in and results in extreme candidates. Count My Vote has been working on a ballot initiative to let voters decide whether to move to primary elections. Supporters of the caucus system, including many lawmakers, argue it requires politicians to win over delegates in person rather than relying on fundraising and campaign advertisements. Lawmakers have committed to passing the bill this week. Count My Vote says it will continue gathering signatures for its imitative until Gov. Gary Herbert signs the legislation. By Michelle L. Price.
