SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - A Utah mother who was on the phone with her 15-year-old daughter when she was murdered says they were talking about the mail when the girl started screaming.

Shauna Bagshaw tells KUTV that she and her daughter Baleigh Bagshaw talked every day after school, including on May 7, the day a normal conversation turned into incomprehensible screaming.

Accused the girl’s death is 24-year-old Shaun French, who police say once lived at the Bagshaw home and had sex with the girl several times when she was 14. He was arrested Wednesday in Colorado after a manhunt.

Shauna Bagshaw says her daughter had wanted the sex to stop, but French had threatened the girl and her family if she broke it off.

No attorney or publicly phone number was immediately available for French.
