Defendant’s mom charged in connection to Moab murder

First Published Apr 12 2013 08:00 pm • Last Updated Apr 13 2013 11:19 am

A woman whose son and another teen are suspected of killing a Moab man was charged Friday with felony obstruction of justice charges in connection to the case.

Corina Dawn Yardley, 44, was arrested in connection with the death of her boyfriend Gregorio Salazar Campos, 33, whose body was discovered Sunday in the Colorado River. He had been reported missing by a family member on March 29. Yardley’s son, Brody Blu Kruckenberg, and Charles Anthony Nelson, both 16, have since been charged with one count each of first-degree felony murder.

Yardley was charged with two counts of second-degree felony obstruction of justice in 7th District Court.

Campos was shot three times in the head on March 25 as he slept in Yardley’s bed at her trailer park home at 608 River Sands Road, according to jail documents.

Nelson was allegedly persuaded to fire the gun by his friend Kruckenberg, according to information received by the Grand County Sheriff’s Office and included in a jail probable cause statement.

Charging documents do not include the details behind Yardley’s charges, but jail documents released earlier this week allege that Yardley cleaned up the murder scene after Campos was shot and helped the boys dump the body

Investigators also found evidence that Yardley removed the mattresses and bedding from the scene and bought a new mattress shortly after that, according to jail documents.

Kruckenberg and Nelson are scheduled for initial hearings on April 23 in Moab. Each is being held on $100,000 bail. Yardley’s initial appearance is scheduled for the same day.
