SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- More charges have been filed in the shooting death of a central Utah sheriff's deputy.

Roberto Miramontes Roman is charged with capital murder and tampering with evidence in the Jan. 5 death of Millard County Sheriff's Deputy Josie Greathouse Fox.

Prosecutors have filed an additional charge of third-degree felony possession of a dangerous weapon by a restricted person. The 37-year-old allegedly had a gun while being in the U.S. illegally.

Ruben Chavez-Reyes is charged with second-degree felony obstruction of justice in the case.

The 36-year-old also is now charged with possession of a dangerous weapon by a restricted person, two counts of burglary and two counts of tampering with evidence. All are felonies.
