SALT LAKE CITY — Prosecutors have charged a man with child abuse homicide in the overdose death of his teenage baby sitter in Utah.
Weber County Attorney Dee Smith says Eric Millerberg also faces additional charges of having sex with a minor, obstructing justice, unlawful sex with a minor and desecration of a body.
Millerberg's wife, Dea, has been charged with desecration of a body.
Alexis Rasmussen had been babysitting for the Millerbergs at their North Ogden home, about 40 miles north of Salt Lake City, on the night she vanished on Sept. 10. The 16-year-old's body was found Oct. 18 off a nearby interstate. Smith says she died of a drug overdose.
Eric Millerberg has since been jailed on a probation violation. His wife is awaiting trial on prescription drug fraud charges.
