PROVO, Utah (AP) — 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 deputy and her boyfriend.

The Daily Herald of Provo reports (http://bit.ly/1hChJ9R) the attorney for 17-year-old Meagan Grunwald said Monday in Provo that his client was as much a victim as anyone else in the events on Jan. 30.

Attorney Dean Zabriskie says Grunwald has no criminal history and is still in high school. He asked for bail to be lowered to $100,000.

Prosecutors countered that by saying her $1 million bail shouldn't be reduced by one cent.

They say Grunwald was an active participant in the crime spree, driving the car as her boyfriend fired at police and also helping pull off a carjacking.
