Federal appeals court denies rehearing for man who killed Millard County deputy

SALT LAKE CITY — A federal appeals court Thursday declined to rehear the case of a Utah man convicted of killing a Millard County sheriff’s deputy, a crime for which he had been acquitted in state court.

The court also found there was enough evidence for a “rational” jury to find Roberto Miramontes Roman guilty of carrying a gun in a drug crime. Roman, 46, argued in an appeal that the… Read More

Becker and his wife, Kate Kopischke, have worked together to launch Scenic Utah, a state affiliate of the national nonprofit Scenic America, a group “dedicated solely to preserving and enhancing the visual character of America’s communities and countryside,” according to its website. “We… Read More
