UTAH COUNTY, Utah, July 6, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — Officials have identified the two people dead after a domestic argument Saturday morning in Utah County.
The deceased have been identified by the Utah County Sheriff’s Office as Ethan Larry Bertrum Timoko, 27, of Orem, and Nakylee Hope Marvin, 24, of Springville.
According to the Utah County Sheriff’s Office, the shooting took place about midnight in a Maple Bench Campground in Payson Canyon, where the victims, a man and woman, had been engaged in a volatile argument for several hours.
“While the woman was talking, the male used a handgun and shot himself in the head,” the Sheriff’s Office statement said.
“Investigators believe the round from that gunshot left the vehicle and struck the woman in the neck. The gunshot appears to have been immediately fatal to the man. The woman was critically injured,” the UCSO statement said.
“Medical responders with Payson Fire & Rescue, along with AirMed responded, but they were unable to save the woman. Her death appears to have been accidental.”
Both bodies were taken to the Medical Examiner’s Office in Taylorsville.
