Former FLDS Teen Guilty Of Murder And Aggravated Sexual Assault

KUTV, Utah/July 1, 2008

Salt Lake City - After deliberating for five hours, a jury found Parley Dutson guilty of killing and sexually assaulting his 15-year-old girlfriend.

Prosecutors say Dutson demanded sex from his girlfriend Kara Hopkins. When she refused, Dutson shot her in the head and sexually assaulted her.

The defense admitted that Dutson was responsible for Hokins death but argued he deserves a lesser sentence on the grounds that Dutson was too intoxicated to knowingly commit the crime.

The jury agreed with prosecutors, stating that Dutson's alleged intoxication did not impair his ability to operate a vehicle.

Parely Dutson will be sentenced on August 21.
