GRANTSVILLE, Utah (AP) — Authorities say a boy accused of killing four members of a Utah family surrendered peacefully following the Friday night slayings but has since refused to speak with detectives trying to piece together a motive. Police in the small town of Grantsville released the names of the victims Monday and said the boy was related to them. The father of the family was released from the hospital after being treated for a gunshot wound. Hundreds of people gathered for a vigil in support of the family Monday night in the town of 11,000 west of Salt Lake City Monday night.

OGDEN, Utah (AP) — Authorities have identified a teenager killed by an avalanche while snowmobiling in Utah. The Davis County Sheriff's Office says 18-year-old Chase Adams was killed Saturday afternoon while snowmobiling with his father in Farmington Canyon north of Salt Lake City. It took search and rescue crews about half an hour to find and dig out the teen, who died at a hospital in Salt Lake City. The teen had an avalanche beacon and an inflatable backpack that's meant to help avoid being buried, but the backpack did not deploy.

FARMINGTON, N.M. (AP) — One of Arizona's largest utilities is seeking companies to build solar plants to provide up to 400 megawatts of power, including 200 megawatts from Navajo Nation facilities. The Farmington Daily Times reported Salt River Project issued a request for proposals Jan. 15. SRP officials say the energy will be delivered to customers in central Arizona. The request from the Phoenix-based utility asks for proposals for plants that can produce between 100 and 200 megawatts. The company says Navajo Nation plants could be located anywhere within its territory that can connect to the SRP grid.
