New charges filed against girlfriend of accused teen killer

July 10, 2018

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — New obstruction of justice charges are being filed against a Utah woman whose boyfriend is accused of killing two teenagers and abandoning their bodies in an abandoned mine shaft.

Prosecutors filed 28 new charges against 34-year-old Morgan Henderson on Monday, one for each time she allegedly deceived police. She had previously been charged with two counts of obstruction of justice in April.

She initially denied knowing about the deaths of 17-year-old Brelynne “Breezy” Otteson or 18-year-old Riley Powell.

Police say Henderson changed her story and told them about the bodies deserted in rural central Utah after she was arrested in March on gun and weapon charges. She pleaded guilty to those charges in May.

Henderson’s attorney declined to comment.
