Teenager Connected in the Shooting Death of an Officer to Appear in Court
PROVO, Utah (AP) Prosecutors say a dash-cam video shows the moments a fugitive fatally shot a Utah deputy and fled in a pickup truck driven by a teenage girl now facing murder charges in the case.

Prosecutors played the video from slain Utah County Sheriff's Sgt. Cory Wride's car in a Provo courtroom Wednesday while trying to convince a judge there's enough evidence for 17-year-old Meagan Grunwald to stand trial.

The teenager is the only surviving suspect from the Jan. 30 chase and shootout with police and faces 12 charges, including murder and attempted murder.

Authorities say Grunwald's boyfriend, 27-year-old Jose Angel Garcia-Juaregui, fatally shot Wride and wounded another deputy during the multi-county police chase.

Garcia-Juaregui later died from wounds he suffered in a shootout with police.

Governor Pitches Healthy Utah Plan to White House Officials
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Utah Gov. Gary Herbert says Medicaid expansion talks with federal officials are moving forward.

Herbert said Wednesday he again made the case in Washington, D.C., this week for a plan to cover low-income Utah residents in the private market, instead of the government program.

He says the plan was well received by White House staff members but its details must still be worked out.

Herbert says hopes by June to secure a lump of federal money for a three-year pilot program to help 110,000 Utah residents buy private health insurance.

The state estimates the program would cost $258 million in federal money during year one and about $280 million by year three.

Herbert, a Republican, has not outlined many specifics of the proposal or exactly how much flexibility he's seeking.

The Show Will Go On: Actress with Cancer Continues in Les Miserable Production
(KUTV) The staging, the costumes, and the music combined together make a perfect union at the sold out performance of Les Miserable at Hale Center Theater in West Valley City. The show will wrap up its run this Saturday and audiences have loved both the production and the cast. But unknown to audiences, a real-life drama has been taking place behind the scenes.

Lori Rees, a North Ogden resident and mother of two, had just been cast in the play back in November. It was a dream come true for her, but just as rehearsals were getting underway Lori discovered a lump in her breast. Right around Christmas doctors confirmed her fears; she had stage two cancer which would require surgery, chemotherapy and radiation.

With the play not scheduled to open until February, Rees worried she would be replaced in the cast, but she wanted to be upfront with the directors and producers. Expecting the worst, she told them about her health. She was pleasantly surprised when they told her they wanted her to continue on in the production.

Throughout the run of the play Rees has been able to maintain the rigorous schedule of rehearsals and shows without missing a beat. During the production she has undergone both surgery and chemotherapy and has only had to miss a couple of performances. She credits her ability to work through her cancer to the support her family, friends and cast members have given her.

Throughout the run of this play Rees has learned a very valuable lesson. She said, “I would say don’t give up on things that make you happy. Whatever brings you joy don’t give up on that no matter how bad you feel. I think this is what gets you through the day.”
