MAGNA, Utah (AP) — Police say a body found in a suitcase along Interstate 80 west of Salt Lake City is not that of a woman who disappeared last month. Provo police said today the remains are not related to the case of Elizabeth "Elena" Laguna Salgado, who was last seen in Provo on April 16. The highway patrol says it's working with another police department to confirm the identity of the body.

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A jury has started deliberating whether a southern Utah county commissioner and three others knowingly broke the law during an ATV protest ride last year through a canyon home to Native American cliff dwellings. Prosecutors said in closing arguments in Salt Lake City that San Juan County Commissioner Phil Lyman and the others knew the trail was off limits to ATVs. The defense said the men believed they were allowed to ride part of the trail based on permission from a local water district official.

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Federal prosecutors in Salt Lake City are moving to dismiss a case alleging a 3-year-old boy was abused on a plane in March. Prosecutors said in court documents filed this week that that there's insufficient evidence against the 48-year-old man from Illinois.

EDEN, Utah (AP) — A Summit employee says the reason the ski resort had to bring in extra tankers of water just before Christmas was because a pump malfunctioned, not low water flow as a state letter says. The Standard-Examiner reports that Summit's ski resort manager says they noticed that faucets were running dry during the resort's busiest season, so they requested two large tankers as a precaution.
