PROVO, Utah (AP) - The city of Eagle Mountain has begun posting sings on a Utah County highway memorializing a slain deputy.

The Daily Herald reports (https://bit.ly/166a7KV ) signs marking the Cory B. Wride Memorial Highway went up Tuesday.

The highway is a section of State Route 73 near Eagle Mountain and Saratoga Springs, about 35 miles south of Salt Lake City.

Wride was killed on the two-lane highway in January while sitting behind the wheel of his patrol car.

The suspected shooter, 27-year-old Jose Angel Garcia-Juaregui, later died after a cross-county crime spree ended with him being shot by police.

His girlfriend, 17-year-old Meagan Grunwald, is charged with aggravated murder.

She is scheduled to stand trial in February.
