LOGAN, Utah (AP) — A juvenile court judge has ruled there's enough evidence for a 16-year-old boy accused of shooting a teen girl in the head to stand trial. The Salt Lake Tribune reports a judge issued the order Tuesday evening after authorities testified that the boy and another 16-year-old boy concocted a plan to "get rid" of 14-year-old Deserae Turner because she was annoyingly texting one of them.

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Utah restaurants will have more freedom to mix and pour alcohol in front of customers under a measure awaiting Gov. Gary Herbert's signature. But other concessions in the proposal aimed at keeping kids away from bars could complicate restaurant seating and leave some establishments keeping up their frosted glass walls known as "Zion Curtains," used to hide the preparation of drinks.

PHNOM PENH, Cambodia (AP) — Cambodia has suspended the export of human breast milk by a U.S. company pioneered by a former Mormon missionary. A legal officer at Cambodia's Customs Department, Rath Nisay, said Tuesday that Finance Minister Aun Porn Moniroth recently signed a letter effectively stopping the sole exporter _ Utah's Ambrosia Labs Ltd. _ from carrying out its business.

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — The mother of a 12-year-old Utah boy who was found severely malnourished early this year is facing two additional counts. The Spectrum newspaper reports the 36-year-old Toquerville woman is facing two more counts of aggravated intentional child abuse. The Associated Press is not naming the woman to avoid identifying the boy. Defense attorney Edward Flint says he will file an objection to the amended charges. The boy weighed just 30 pounds when he was found in January in feces-strewn bathroom.
