A 17-year-old boy was charged Wednesday in connection with the July 31 stabbing death of a man at a Capital Hill area home.
The teen was charged in 3rd District Juvenile Court with second-degree felony counts of manslaughter and obstruction of justice in connection with the death of 22-year-old Kaleb Yazzie.
The Salt Lake Tribune does not typically identify juveniles charged with crimes.
Also Wednesday, two brothers charged in connection with the slaying were given new court dates.
Ammon Karr, 21, charged with obstructing justice, a second-degree felony and aggravated assault, a third-degree felony, made his initial appearance in court, and a scheduling hearing was set for Aug. 24 before Judge Vernice Trease.
Ammon Karr's older brother, Adam Karr, 26, was not transported to court but he, too, was ordered to appear before Trease next week.
Adam Karr is charged with first-degree felony murder and obstructing justice, a second-degree felony.
On July 31, a crowd of people, including Yazzie, went to a party at 31 E. Girard Avenue (560 North), where the Karr brothers lived, according to court documents.
At some point during the night an argument erupted between Yazzie and Ammon Karr. Both brothers who witnesses said were carrying knives threatened to stab Yazzie at different times in the night, documents state.
The two Karr brothers went outside to fight Yazzie, on the way out Adam Karr told a witness that he would stab Yazzie if he hit his brother. The juvenile who is charged also went out and joined the fight with Yazzie, court records state.
During the fight Adam Karr stabbed Yazzie "several times in the chest area with his knife," according to documents.
Yazzie staggered off the porch and fell on the ground, at which point a juvenile male dragged Yazzie 150 feet from the yard and down the road to an alley where he "stomped" on Yazzie's head and left the man, court records state.
Witnesses told police they saw Ammon Karr wash the blood off his hands and arms. Court documents say the brothers and the juvenile changed their clothes and shoved their bloody clothes and a folding knife, used to stab Yazzie, in a bag. The brothers took the bag and hid it in the bushes at the end of the road, documents state.
Adam Karr is being held on being held at the Salt Lake County jail in lieu of $1 million bail. Ammon Karr is being held on $50,000 bail
