SANDY -- Salt Lake County prosecutors are filing a murder charge against a now 34-year-old man accused of killing another man at a party in Sandy 17 years ago.
County District Attorney Sim Gill says recent interviews with two witnesses led detectives to arrest Antonio Martinez, who had told police nearly a decade ago that he committed a crime so bad he'd been on the run for years.
John Wollshleger was found shot in the head and lying in the bed of a pickup truck in July 1995. Police also saw abrasions on his back, as if he'd been dragged over asphalt.
Witnesses indicated the 30-year-old Wollshleger had come to the party to buy cocaine.
Martinez was booked in jail Tuesday. It's not clear whether he has an attorney.
