SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Friends are set to remember a Utah college student who authorities say was killed and her charred remains found in a Salt Lake City man's backyard.
A vigil is planned for Monday night at the University of Utah to memorialize 23-year-old Mackenzie Lueck, who has been remembered as a bubbly, nurturing person who looked after her friends and took care of animals.
Lueck disappeared after taking a Lyft June 17 from the airport to a park, where police say she met someone in the early-morning hours. Authorities on Friday said they plan to charge 31-year-old Ayoola A. Ajayi with aggravated murder, kidnapping and other crimes.
Police say they found her remains and personal things burned and buried in his backyard.sonos sonos One (Gen 2) - Voice Controlled Smart Speaker with Amazon Alexa Built-in - Black read more
