(KSL News) New information tonight about that bizarre murder in Tooele County we told you about last Sunday.

Detectives have released the names of the two men who burned in a car on Interstate 80 near the Delle exit.

Oscar Botello, 29, also known as Arturo Leyva, is the man who died. The man who survived is Julio Caesar Garcia Rodriguez, 24.

Police say Rodriguez had a wound to his neck and suffered burns on 54 percent of his body. He remains in a medically-induced coma.

Police have very little to go on in this case. Anyone with information is asked to call the Tooele County Sheriff's Office.
