PROVO, Utah -- The 17-year-old girl charged in the murder of Utah County Sheriff's Sgt. Cory Wride made her first appearance in court for a hearing Monday.

Meagan Dakota Grunwald faces 17 charges, mostly felonies, including aggravated murder, attempted murder and obstruction of justice.

Prosecutors said even though Grunwald is still technically a juvenile, they allege she was an active and willing participant in the deadly crime spree on Jan. 30 that killed Utah County Sgt. Cory Wride and wounded Utah County Deputy Greg Sherwood.

Grunwald will be back in court on March 3 for her next hearing. She remains in jail on a $1 million cash only bond.
