MOAB -- One of two 16-year-olds accused in the slaying of a Moab man faces charges of murder and obstructing justice.
The Deseret News reports that the teen faces five years to life in prison on the murder count if he's found guilty.
His mother Corina Yardley faces charges of obstructing justice. Police say she tried to cover up the death of Gregorio Salazar Campos, whom they believe was her boyfriend.
Deputies say Campos was reported missing March 29, and his body was pulled from the Colorado River about a week later.
The other 16-year-old suspect told police that his friend suggested they shoot Campos in the head while Campos slept.
Authorities have sealed some documents in the case, saying they deal with drug trafficking connected to violent groups.
