SHARE Arrest warrants issued for 4 in Sept. 7 slaying

Arrest warrants have been issued for four men charged with the Sept. 7 slaying murder of Jeremy Facundo.

Anthony L. LaPearle, 23; Joshua Allen Nielson, 21; Travis Rigby, 18; and Cory Young, 26, all of West Valley City, were charged with two counts each of criminal homicide, a first-degree felony, Tuesday in 3rd District Court.

A confidential informant told police four men were planning to "jack" a man they called "Steve," charges state. They told Steve they had $1,400 of methamphetamine to sell. But actually, they didn't have any meth to sell.

About 6:30 a.m., the four men drove a maroon car to 400 N. Grant St. (740 West,) and met two or three people in a green car, charges state.

A handgun was in the maroon car and the men passed it around. Then LaPearle fired the gun at the green car, charges state.

Police found Facundo dead with a gunshot wound to the head.
