The male suspect, believed to be an undocumented Mexican national who entered the country about two weeks ago, was taken into custody and was still being questioned late Tuesday morning.

The female suspect was believed to be a Utah resident.

Authorities declined to release the names of the suspects, citing the ongoing investigation, but both were expected to be booked into Salt Lake County jail.
