SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A West Valley City man has been charged with DUI in a hit-and-run that killed a 79-year-old man.

FORT DUCHESNE, Utah (AP) — A Utah man is dead and two teenage boys have been wounded in a shooting on the Uintah-Ouray Indian Reservation in northeastern Utah. The FBI tells the Deseret News there was a confrontation between two groups. Crews rushed Evan Cuch to Uintah Basin Medical Center in Roosevelt, where medical workers pronounced him dead.

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Kate Kelly -- the founder of a Mormon women's group pushing for gender equality -- says the church is trying to excommunicate her. And John Dehlin -- a blogger who provides a forum for church members questioning their faith -- is also facing excommunication. The church said last night there's room for questions about the faith, but that some members' actions could "lead others astray." Both hope to be allowed to continue to be members of a church that they love.
