A court hearing for a Roy woman in whose backyard a missing man’s body was found buried was continued Tuesday while authorities await DNA test results.

Sarah Munn, 32, was arrested in February and charged with obstructing justice after police found the body of 25-year-old Victor Flores buried three feet deep in her backyard.

Investigators served a search warrant on Munn’s residence, 3812 W. 4550 South, in early February after receiving a tip about Flores’ disappearance.

Police dug in the backyard for four days before unearthing the missing California man’s body.

Roy Police Chief Greg Whinham said in February that based on Munn’s "inconsistencies [in what she told police], she was booked for obstruction of justice."Authorities are awaiting results of testing on DNA found at the scene, not belonging to Flores, to see if it matches Munn’s.

Those results weren’t available Tuesday so Munn’s disposition hearing was moved to late October.
