(KSL News) -- A judge today ruled there is not enough evidence to try an American Fork man on charges he gave his wife a lethal injection.

Peter Uluave, who at the time was a registered nurse, was charged with manslaughter for starting an IV on his wife with a deadly mix of prescription drugs.

When Rebecca Uluave was found dead detectives believed it was not from natural causes.

But today a judge ruled that while there is evidence Uluave unlawfully started an IV and obstructed justice, there is not enough evidence to show he intentionally killed his wife.
