    UT - Elvis Olsen, 22, shot to death, Uintah County, 21 April 2013

    Body found in Uintah County field

    Uintah County sheriff's deputies, FBI agents and Bureau of Indian Affairs police are investigating a homicide on the Uintah and Ouray Indian Reservation after a man's body was found Sunday in a wooded area.

    No identification was found with the body, but the man appears to be in his mid-20s and has several tattoos, Uintah County Sheriff Jeff Merrell said. He would not say what caused the man's death.

    A Fort Duchesne man accused of killing an acquaintance in April 2013 and then stealing his car was convicted of murder and theft...

    Olsen and Saenz met while they were serving time in the Uintah County Jail. Text messages between the men on the day of the shooting show that Olsen agreed to give Saenz a ride to his grandfather's house in Fort Duchesne. Saenz's grandfather was out of town at the time.

    Prosecutors presented evidence during the trial that showed a .44 magnum revolver was missing from the grandfather's home when it was searched shortly after Olsen's body was found. The same gun was found when Saenz was arrested the following day in Arizona while driving Olsen's car.

    A Uintah County man who killed an acquaintance while out on bail in an unrelated rape case has received a lengthy prison sentence that could keep him behind bars for the rest of his life.

    A jury found Jesse Anthony Saenz guilty of murder, theft, and possession of a firearm by a restricted person in August... Judge Clark McClellan sentenced Saenz to serve 15 years to life in prison for killing Elvis Zachary Olsen. McClellan also imposed prison terms of one-to-15 years for the theft and weapons possession convictions. All of three sentences will run consecutive to one another.

    Saenz, 25, shot Olsen in the face, chest and arm on April 21, 2013, and left him dead in a field of tall, yellow grass 100 feet from the home where Saenz's grandfather lived, according to testimony given during the trial.
