Two Utah men were reportedly charged in the killing of a man whose body was found dumped in the desert, a report said.
Troy Pexton, 56, and 41-year-old Scott Blackett were charged in connection to the death of 50-year-old Michael Caussey, authorities announced Saturday, according to Fox 13.
Caussey’s body was found near a highway in the west Juab County desert on Friday.
The trio had reportedly been drinking and riding in a truck together when Pexton allegedly shot Caussey amid a fight between the victim and Blackett, according to arrest documents obtained by the outlet.
The two suspects then dumped Caussey and returned to Nephi, where they live, police said.
