Man charged with obstructing justice for deleting text messages

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.
