Couple expected to be charged in Utah teen's deathDefense attorney: Prosecutors plan homicide charges for couple in Utah teen's death
OGDEN, Utah (AP) ' An attorney representing a "person of interest" in the death of a 16-year-old Utah girl says homicide charges will soon be filed against his client.
Police say Alexis Rasmussen vanished Sept. 10 after babysitting for Eric and Dea Millerberg in North Ogden, about 40 miles north of Salt Lake City. Her body was found Oct. 18 off a highway.
Dea Millerberg appeared in court Wednesday on unrelated drug charges and was ordered held.
Her attorney, Michael Bouwhuism, says prosecutors informed him charges ranging from manslaughter to capital murder would be filed within the month against Millerberg and her husband, who also is jailed on unrelated charges.
Weber County Attorney Dee Smith this week identified the couple as "persons of interest" in the teens' death, but authorities have declined to elaborate.
