Man charged with obstructing justice for deleting text messages
SALT LAKE CITY — A Salt Lake City man has been charged with obstructing justice after police said he deleted text messages after learning the woman he'd sent them to was dead.
Christopher Grant Sutton, 36, is charged with obstructing justice, a second-degree felony, according to charges filed Thursday in 3rd District Court.
Sutton is accused of sending text messages to Ann Marie Jensen, who was found dead in her South Salt Lake apartment from multiple gunshot wounds Nov. 4, charges state. Upon learning Jensen had been shot, Sutton deleted the text messages, according to the charges.
Police said the texts were deleted so Sutton's connection to Jensen's death wouldn't be known.
