(KUTV) - On June 13, 2018 the body of Elizabeth Carter, 33, was found in her apartment off 500 N. Bluff Street.

St. George Police said her apartment was found in a way that made investigators suspicious and after gathering enough evidence an arrest was made. Keven Ray Mcatlin, was taken into custody by Moab Police and transferred to Purgatory Correctional Facility in Washington County.

Friends of Carter are distraught, really hurting right now following the alleged murder of their friend. Sandra Hughes-Amato, a woman who said she went through some tough times with Elizabeth spoke to 2News about her memories of Carter.

“It's been traumatizing to be honest with you. To think, that could have been me, that could have been any one of us,” Hughes-Amato said.

At one point during Carter's, Hughes-Amato’s time together they were both staying at the Dove Center in St. George, a center known to help women who’ve been involved with Domestic Violence.

“She was really quiet, and reserved,” Hughes-Amato said, “She didn't do drugs, she wasn't do anything of that stuff. She was a good person, that's why we clicked.”

The investigation continues right now and this is what police are said on social media regarding the case:

“These types of cases are complex and technically challenging. Evidence is still being processed and work continues on the case; therefore, we are not releasing more details of this case, at this time.”
