FARMINGTON -- A 47-year-old woman is charged with helping Joseph Allen Nance hide from police after he shot his father on March 29 in Kaysville.
Karla Jean Puffpaff of Layton appeared in 2nd District Court on Monday. She is charged with one count of second-degree felony obstruction of justice. Another hearing has been set for Jan. 9.
Her attorney, Ryan J. Bushell, said he needs time to go through all the documents provided by prosecutors because her case is linked to a murder case.
Police said Puffpaff picked up Nance on Mutton Hollow Road shortly after he killed his father, Gregory A. Nance on March 19 at the Far West Motel in Kaysville.
She then gave Nance supplies and drove him to an underground bunker in Layton to hide him from police, according to court documents.
Charges were filed against Puffpaff on June 30. She pleaded not guilty to the charges on Oct. 24.
