LOGAN, Utah (AP) — A Utah father will serve 30 days in jail and 30 days of house arrest for chaining his 7-year-old son to a bed while the man was at work. The Herald Journal reports the judge insisted on jail time despite a recommendation from prosecutors that the 29-year-old Logan man only serve house arrest. A defense attorney says the father couldn't afford day care.

PROVO, Utah (AP) — A judge is postponing sentencing for an Orem man convicted in his wife's 2012 death to hear arguments about a quote from the movie "Dumb and Dumber." The defense argues that the prosecutor's movie reference at trial was a personal attack. Conrad Truman was found guilty of killing his wife after a night of drinking, possibly to collect nearly $1 million in insurance money.

LOGAN, Utah (AP) — The family of a Utah college student who died after riding his bike into a rope tied between two trees has agreed to dismiss three students from a wrongful death lawsuit. The rope known as a "slack line" was set up by the students on Utah State University's campus to practice their balance. Authorities say Eric Anderson slammed into the chest-high line on the Logan campus in August 2013. He died at the hospital.
