Wride was shot and killed Jan. 30 when he stopped to check on a pickup that was stopped on the shoulder of State Road 73 near Eagle Mountain. Wride was sitting in his patrol car when the driver of the pickup, 27-year-old Jose Angel Garcia-Jauregui, allegedly fired on Wride through the pickup’s sliding rear window. Jauregui fled, shooting and wounding another officer in Santaquin, and later was shot by Juab County sheriff’s deputies in Nephi.

Meagan Dakota Grunwald, 17, was in the truck with Jauregui and is accused of being involved with the shooting spree. She is charged with aggravated murder in Wride’s death and attempted aggravated murder in the wounding of Utah County sheriff’s deputy Greg Sherwood, the officer who was shot in the head in Santaquin.
