WOODS CROSS, Utah (AP) — A Utah police chief defended an officer who pulled his gun on a 10-year-old black boy, saying the officer believed the child might be an armed suspect and will keep working during an independent review. Woods Cross Police Chief Chad Soffe said Monday that the unidentified officer mistook the boy for a potential suspect, but used good judgment overall. Jerri Hrubes said a white Woods Cross police officer pulled his gun on her son, DJ Hrubes, who is black, while he was playing on the front lawn.

PARK CITY, Utah (AP) — A Utah ski resort where Gwyneth Paltrow is accused of smashing into a skier wants to be dismissed from a lawsuit that it argues should be settled between the actress and the alleged victim. Deer Valley Resort attorney Adam Strachan said during a hearing Monday in Park City, Utah, that the ski area is shielded from responsibilities for skiing collisions under a law that takes into account the inherent dangers of skiing. Paltrow wasn't at the hearing.

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A Utah mother is in jail after authorities say she attempted to strangle her two young daughters. Police records show 27-year-old Karen Butterfield attempted to smother her two girls, 2 and 4, with a pillow Saturday before trying to strangle them. Police say the girls survived but suffered injuries to their necks. Butterfield was booked into the jail on suspicion of attempted child-abuse homicide, assault and other charges. She is being held without bail and doesn't have a listed attorney

OGDEN, Utah (AP) — When her first child was born intersex some two decades ago, Amie Schofield took doctors' advice and raised the baby as a boy. But that didn't settle the issue of gender in the child's mind, or protect them from a savage beating decades later. So when she had a second child both with both male and female traits, Schofield and her husband took a different path. Instead of changing Victory, they are intent on changing the world so it is more accepting of intersex people.
