Two more Pineview boaters on trial in swimmer’s death

< Previous Page

Shepherd, the owner of the boat, told a detective with the Weber County Sheriff’s Office that the three men were boating near the Spring Creek Cove area of Pineview Reservoir at about 8 p.m. on Aug. 21 , 2011, when their boat hit Fujimoto, a University of Utah medical researcher.

Shepherd told police that Raines was driving the boat at the time of the accident, but when they circled back to check on the woman, Shepherd had taken the wheel. Shepherd told police that Fujimoto told them she was OK, so they left.

Raines and Boyer have never talked with police about the incident.

Witnesses who were with the three men earlier that day have previously testified that they spent the day at "Party Cove," and all three men consumed alcohol. Witnesses said Raines and Boyer also smoked marijuana earlier in the day.

Trial for the two men will resume Tuesday.
