PROVO -- Lawyers for a teenaged girl charged in connection with the the death of a Utah County Sheriff's deputy want her trial moved to West Jordan.

Megan Grunwald, 17, appeared in court briefly on Monday where her lawyers asked for more time to argue a motion for a change of venue. The judge set a new hearing for Aug. 4.

Grunwald is accused in the death of Utah County Sheriff's Sgt. Cory Wride. Police say her boyfriend, Jose Angel Garcia-Jauregui, shot Wride during a traffic stop in Eagle Mountain last year. Deputy Greg Sherwood was wounded in a high-speed chase to Nephi, where Garcia-Jauregui was killed.

    Grunwald should have been more careful in picking her boyfriends. Garcia-Jauregui had served 4½ years in prison on an attempted-murder conviction. Hopefully she’ll get 50 years in prison to ponder her poor judgement.

    Why do we pamper the criminals? She knew exactly what she was doing! She smiles in her photos like this is a game.
