After Gutberto Heras-Corrales was accused of murdering the mother of his child, Weber County prosecutors asked the case’s judge to let them present details of a Davis County arson case to the jury.

OGDEN — The murder trial for a man accused of killing a Layton woman in 2008 has been moved to June. 

Gutberto Heras-Corrales, 41, was scheduled to go before a jury Feb. 6, but the trial was pushed back several months after state prosecutors filed a motion in 2nd District Court on Jan. 19 asking for more time to bring two witnesses to Utah.

Heras-Corrales’s 10-day trial is now scheduled for June 5 to 20. He is charged with one count of first-degree felony murder in connection with the death of Noemi Rodriguez on Christmas 2008. 

Rodriguez’s body was found by a snowplow driver Dec. 26, 2008, in Huntsville, court records say. She’d lived with Heras-Corrales for several years.

At the time of Rodriquez’s death, Herras-Corrales — who is from Culiacán, Mexico — was in the country illegally and fled back to Mexico days after her body was found, court records say.


He was extradited to Ogden in July 2015, and his next hearing is scheduled for March 9. 

In addition to the first-degree murder charge, Heras-Corrales faces a first-degree arson charge connected to Rodriguez’s Layton mobile home being burned down five days before she died.

A five-day jury trial for that case is scheduled for May 1 to 5 in Farmington.

Obviously, this violent suspect, belongs in prison for the rest of his life. His actions are in no way related to any President, past or current, and to suggest such is denigrating his violent murder of an innocent victim.


Really?How does a 2008 Criminal (during the Bush Era) relate to Former President Obama?Please explain!!


Thanks, Obama.
