Utah Police Arrest Juvenile Suspect in Young Girl's Death

Police have arrested a teenage boy in the death of a 12-year-old girl whose body was found in an overgrown horse pasture near her home in suburban Salt Lake City.
West Valley City Police Chief Lee Russo said Friday afternoon that investigators think the 15-year-old is the sole suspect.
Russo declined to give the boy's name or discuss anything about him because he's a juvenile.
The chief added he will likely be charged with murder.
Russo identified the girl as Kailey Vijil, who the boy lured her out of her house around midnight.
Russo says it doesn't appear the suspect and Vijil had a prior relationship.
