Evidence hearing for teen charged in deputy death

PROVO, Utah (AP) — Prosecutors say a dash-cam video shows the moments a fugitive fatally shot a Utah deputy and fled in a pickup truck driven by a teenage girl now facing murder charges in the case.

Prosecutors played the video from slain Utah County Sheriff's Sgt. Cory Wride's car in a Provo courtroom Wednesday while trying to convince a judge there's enough evidence for 17-year-old Meagan Grunwald to stand trial.

The teenager is the only surviving suspect from the Jan. 30 chase and shootout with police and faces 12 charges, including murder and attempted murder.

Authorities say Grunwald's boyfriend, 27-year-old Jose Angel Garcia-Juaregui (how-REG'-ee), fatally shot Wride and wounded another deputy during the multi-county police chase.

Garcia-Juaregui later died from wounds he suffered in a shootout with police.


Salt Lake City police seek suspect in bank robbery

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Salt Lake City police are looking for a man who robbed a Key Bank on South Foothill Boulevard.

Police say the white man in his mid-20s entered the bank about 3:15 p.m. Tuesday and gave a teller a note demanding money. He then fled the scene with an undisclosed amount of money in a white BMW believed to be a 3 series built in the early 2000s.

The suspect is described as being about 6-foot-1, between 190 and 200 pounds with a stocky build, scruffy facial hair and yellow teeth.

He was wearing blue jeans and an off-white hooded jacket with a darker geometric pattern.

Police are asking anyone with information to call 801-799-3000.


Chickens OK in West Valley City neighborhoods

(Information in the following story is from: The Salt Lake Tribune,

WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah (AP) — Chickens may soon be coming home to roost in urban parts of West Valley City where they've been banned in the past.

The City Council approved an ordinance Tuesday night that defines female chickens as "household pets" — a designation that allows hens in residential neighborhoods for the first time.

Until now, chickens have been permitted only in agricultural areas of the city.

The ordinance permits each household to have a total of four pets. Roosters are still banned.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports the council approved the measure on a 4-3 vote after hearing sharply divided public comment on the issue at previous meetings.


Suicide suspected in Sunset train-pedestrian fatal

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A man was struck and killed by a FrontRunner train in Sunset, shutting down a stretch of the commuter line for several hours Tuesday night.

The Davis County police department says the accident happened about 8 p.m. near 2300 North and 475 West.

The Utah Transit Authority set up bus service to shuttle passengers between the Clearfield and Roy stations while authorities investigated.

Authority spokesman Remi Barron says the man was walking down the middle of the tracks. The investigation continues, but Barron says it appears to have been a suicide.


Utah Symphony to play for free in national parks

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — The Utah Symphony has announced it will play against southern Utah's soaring red rocks and canyons this August.

The 75-piece orchestra will tour five of the state's national parks in a series of free concerts at Capitol Reef, Arches and Canyonlands.

The list also includes Bryce Canyon and Zion national parks.

Music Director Thierry Fischer will lead works designed to complement the environment.

Fischer says the stunning views and classical music make a natural pair.

The performances are sponsored by the George S. and Dolores Doré Eccles Foundation, the state Legislature and the Sorenson Legacy Foundation.

Other businesses are helping to foot the bill, including O.C. Tanner, Zions Bank, Questar, and Chevron.

Chamber music performances will also take place at visitor centers and outdoor amphitheaters along the tour route.
