Springville woman jailed after allegedly shooting dead 75-year-old man

An elderly man is dead and a woman in jail after a shooting in Springville on Wednesday.

According to a probable cause statement, a 33-year-old woman who lives near 400 North and 100 East ran to a nearby home and told a neighbor she needed medical attention using an elderly man’s feeding tube. When medical personnel arrived, they immediately called the police.

Officers arrived at the home around 10:48 a.m., police said. They “observed that the victim had sustained a gunshot wound to the head” and that there was a gun by his feet. Police identified him as Michael Huff, 75.

Police said the 33-year-old woman locked herself in an upstairs bedroom and refused to come out. Officers unlocked the door and found her “lying in the fetal position on a bed” with “blood on her hands, arms and clothing,” according to the probable cause explanation. After the suspect initially refused to say anything about the killing and to ask for a lawyer, the suspect then “made several spontaneous statements about the killing”.

The suspect was booked in the Utah County Jail on charges of murder, obstruction of justice and possession of a firearm by a restricted person. She is being held without bail. The Salt Lake Tribune generally does not name suspects until they have been charged with a crime.

This is the third alleged murder in Springville in eight days. On May 18, 17-year-old Lily Conroy was shot dead by her ex-boyfriend Masao Kaanga, 19, according to police, who said Kaanga then shot herself. Gregory Shaffer, 42, was shot dead on the porch of his home on Saturday. A former neighbor, Hunter Ryan Lamoreaux, 25, has been charged with murder.
