SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A jury has convicted a southern Utah county commissioner and a blogger and acquitted two others accused of knowingly breaking the law during an ATV protest ride last year through a canyon home to Native American cliff dwellings. The jury found San Juan County Commissioner Phil Lyman and blogger Monte Wells guilty. It acquitted Shane Marian and Franklin "Trent" Holliday.

MAGNA, Utah (AP) — Police say a body found in a suitcase along Interstate 80 west of Salt Lake City is that of a middle-aged woman. Unified Police Lt. Justin Hoyal said yesterday afternoon that the woman had long dark hair, a wrist tattoo and had a mastectomy. Hoyal says an autopsy shows the woman died from a gunshot wound. Police in Provo said earlier yesterday that they had ruled out the body as that of a 26-year-old woman who disappeared last month in Provo.

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Federal prosecutors in Utah are moving to dismiss a case alleging a 3-year-old boy was abused on a plane. Prosecutors said in court documents filed this week that that there's insufficient evidence against the 48-year-old man from Illinois. The U.S. Attorney's Office declined to elaborate on the reasons for dismissing the abusive sexual contact count but said it's the right thing to do.

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 Mark Schroetel says they noticed that faucets were running dry during the resort's busiest season, so they requested two large tankers as a precaution.
