SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A Utah prosecutor says that five Salt Lake City police officers' use of deadly force that resulted in the death of a man in a November 2018 shooting was justified and no charges will be filed against the officers. District Attorney Sim Gil announced his findings Friday regarding the death of Cody Belgard, who was shot after he rammed into a police car and two other vehicles while trying to evade arrest.

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A Utah judge has been suspended without pay for six months for comments he made online and in court criticizing President Donald Trump. The state Supreme Court determined Judge Michael Kwan violated the judicial code of conduct. Among Kwan's remarks cited in the ruling is an online post from 2017 questioning if Trump would undermine the country's reputation and standing in the world and continue to demonstrate a "political incompetence." His lawyer says Kwan regrets making the statements.
