Prosecutors charged a Utah man Tuesday with child abuse homicide in the death of his teenage baby sitter, the Associated Press said.
Suspect Eric Millerberg faces charges of having sex with a minor, obstructing justice and desecration of a body. Millerberg's wife, Dea, was charged with desecration of a body also.
The body of 16-year-old Alexis Rasmussen was found in a shallow grave more than a month after she was reported missing. Rasmussen was babysitting for the Millerbergs at their North Ogden home on Sept. 10, which is the night she disappeared. Her body was found Oct. 18 off a nearby interstate.
Documents reveal that Rasmussen was much more involved with the Millerbergs than mere babysitting, the Standard-Examiner reports. She had also slipped into drug use with the Millerbergs, and even sold narcotic painkillers to a friend the night she was last seen.
