PROVO, Utah — The Utah County Attorney’s Office has filed two felony obstruction of justice charges against the girlfriend of a man suspected of killing two Juab County teenagers.

Morgan Reannon Henderson, 34,  is accused of denying any knowledge of the whereabouts of Riley Powell and Brelynne Otteson during interviews with detectives on January 9 and January 25.
