Suspect in Slaying of Utah Deputy Captured

August 30, 2010  | 

Scott Curley, the suspect in the slaying of a Kane County sheriff’s deputy, has been captured by law enforcement officers near the southern Utah town of Kanab.

Arizona’s Coconino County Sheriff’s Department spokeswoman Erika Wittenmuth said Curley was taken into custody about 1 a.m. in the Lost Spring subdivision after a homeowner reported seeing a man with a rifle slung over his shoulder trying to get into his home about 12:20 a.m. In all, 17 police officers rushed to the scene and soon located Curley.

“[The caller] was awakened by his dogs barking, looked out of his window and saw [Curley],” she said. “Curley surrendered without resistance and was in possession of the rifle suspected to have been used in the murder of Deputy Brian Harris [last Thursday].”

The Coconino County Sheriff’s Office detectives are interviewing Curley in Kanab, and they will file an extradition and prosecution warrant to bring Curley back to Arizona on first-degree murder charges, Wittenmuth said.
