Golden homicide victim identity released

Posted: Updated:
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -

Salt Lake City Police say 24-year old Austin Jeffrey Boutain has turned himself in connection to a fatal carjacking in Utah and recent homicide in Colorado. 

University of Utah police chief Dale Brophy said Tuesday at a press conference in Salt Lake City that 24-year-old Austin Boutain and his wife, 23-year-old Kathleen E. Boutain, were wanted in connection to a homicide in Golden last week.

The Golden Police Department said in a release that Boutain and his wife were also persons of interest in the homicide of a 63-year-old man at the Clear Creek RV Park. 

The victim was found early Tuesday morning after Salt Lake City police tipped off Golden police. Authorities said Boutain and his wife likely stole the green 2000 Ford truck, which was registered to the homicide victim in Colorado.

The identity of the victim has been released as 63-year old Mitchell Bradford Ingle. 

Police say they believe Boutain fatally shot 23-year-old student ChenWei Guo Monday night in Utah. University President David W. Pershing issued a statement saying that he was studying pre-computer science and was a peer adviser in the international Student and Scholar Services Office.

Pershing said the university has been in contact with the student's parents.

Brophy says authorities believe the couple have been in Utah for several days and were camping in the foothills above the University of Utah.

Salt Lake County jail records show Kathleen E. Boutain was booked into the Salt Lake County Jail on Tuesday on unrelated drug and theft charges.

The University of Utah canceled Tuesday classes.

Salt Lake City Police will be interviewing Boutain today.
