CEDAR CITY — A Cedar City man will stand trial in the shooting death of his wife.
Tristan Jared Lamoreaux, 24, was bound over for trial following a preliminary hearing Wednesday in 5th District Court.
Lamoreaux is charged with murder, a first-degree felony, in the slaying of Misty Lamoreaux. He is also charged with possession of a firearm by a restricted person, a third-degree felony, and failure to stop at the command of a law enforcement officer, a class A misdemeanor.
On Aug. 23, Cedar City police responded to a call of shots fired in the Lamoreauxs' apartment near the intersection of 400 North and 400 West. They found Misty Lamoreaux, 19, dead in the bathroom. An autopsy determined she died as a result of multiple gunshots to the head.
Police said they arrested Jared Lamoreaux after he led officers on a brief foot chase when he was spotted leaving the apartment complex. He remains in the Purgatory Correctional Facility. His arraignment is scheduled for Dec. 21.
