SALT LAKE CITY -- Police are accusing a Utah woman of taking part in a plot to abduct and kill a man because she thought he witnessed an October incident in Cottonwood Heights.

The Deseret News of Salt Lake City reports that 33-year-old Michelle Gallegos was arrested Tuesday after she was identified as one of several suspects.

Midvale police are investigating the kidnapping because the man in his 20s was reported to have been taken from a hotel room in that city last Friday.

Grantsville and other police are investigating allegations of an attempted murder at a remote location in Grantsville.

The man told police a gun misfired and he was able to get away.
