West Jordan Couple Killed Over The Weekend

West Jordan law enforcement continue to looks for leads into who shot and killed a Utah husband and wife over the weekend.  30-year-old Katherine Butterfield and her husband, 31-year-old Tony Butterfield, were found Saturday night in their home.  Police believe the couple was killed during a home invasion.

Neighbors held a vigil to show support for the family. They are also raising money to go toward the care of three children who were unharmed.  The youngest child is a six-month old.
The West Jordan Police Department released an update on Twitter Sunday afternoon saying “progress is being made” in the search for a suspect. They said they will not be releasing any specifics to the public at this time in order to “maintain the integrity of the investigation.”

At 14-years-old, Kerry began working as a reporter for KVEL “The Hot One” in Vernal, Utah. Her radio news interests led her to Logan where she became news director for KBLQ while attending Utah State University. She graduated USU with a degree in Broadcast Journalism and spent the next few years working for Utah Public Radio. Leaving UPR in 1993 she spent the next 14 years as the full time mother of four boys before returning in 2007. Kerry and her husband Boyd reside in Nibley.
