FARMINGTON -- For the second time in a week, Sarah Nichole Munn appeared in court.

Munn, 32, of Roy, appeared in a brown suit before Judge David C. Hamilton on Wednesday. She is charged out of Layton with harboring a fugitive.

Layton police filed that charge against her in September 2011, after she denied seeing Daniel Rivera, who had walked away from Weber County Jail in August 2011. Rivera, who is a person of interest in the death of Victor Flores, was arrested in Wyoming in September 2011 and is now in Utah State Prison, serving a sentence for escape.

Munn is charged with one count of second-degree felony obstructing justice in 2nd District Court in Ogden after police found Flores' body wrapped in a blanket and buried in Munn's backyard in Roy earlier this year. She had appeared in 2nd District Court in Ogden on Tuesday.

Munn's attorney, Ron Yengich, said in court that he needs about three months to see which direction the case in Ogden is going before he and Munn can decide how to resolve the case in Farmington.

"I thought we had agreed to drug court, but the charges in Weber County have nixed that deal," Yengich said.

Hamilton set June 20 for another hearing.
