3-Year Old Safe After Freeway Standoff


By KMVT Staff

Beaver County, Utah ( KUTV ) A 3-year old girl is safe, after being held for hours by a murder suspect, thought to be armed and in a car on I–15.

Utah Highway Police troopers closed the interstate in both directions in southern Utah, as police negotiators took up the delicate task of convincing the suspect to surrender.

Beaver County Sheriff Cameron Noel said it all began as U.S. Marshals were "pinging" the man's cell phone and found his location.

Authorities spiked his tires near Cedar City.
