Two prison parolees charged with killing a woman and her mother, shooting the woman's husband and kidnapping their two daughters were expected to be bound over to 3rd District Court Tuesday to stand trial on the charges.
Von Lester Taylor, 25, and Edward Steven Deli, 21, have each been charged with 10 felonies stemming from the Dec. 22 slayings of Kaye Tidwell Tiede, 51, and her blind mother, Beth Harmon Tidwell Potts, 76.Both were to appear before 3rd Circuit Court Judge Edward Watson for a preliminary hearing to decide if there was enough evidence to order the men to stand trial on the charges.
Tiede and her family came to Salt Lake City from Humble, Texas, to visit her Murray mother for a Salt Lake LDS Temple ceremony believed to bind the family together after death. The two men are charged with killing them as the women returned to their cabin in Oakley, Summit County.
Linae Tiede, 20, said the men then tied her up. When Rolf Tiede and his 16-year-old daughter arrived at the cabin, she said the men demanded money from Rolf Tiede at gunpoint and then Taylor shot him in the face. Court documents also say Deli then poured snowmobile fuel throughout the cabin and ignited it before kidnapping the two young women "to use as shields" in case they were confronted by police.
The two men were arrested following a high-speed chase and shootout with police.
