Wounded, intoxicated man found on State Capitol grounds
(KUTV) A wounded, 24-year-old male was found in the State Office Building early Friday morning.

Jesse Docauer, from Layton, was intoxicated and had a superficial wound to the face.

Utah Highway Patrol says after the Utah Utes football game, Docauer found an open door that had been kept open by air blowing out of the building.

An employee had left the building  for a few minutes and in that time Docauer walked in and took the elevator to the 6th floor.

Docauer has been released to his father with charges pending on the incident.

Father wants justice for his 14-month-old daughter who was beaten to death
(KUTV) James LaBuy drove to Utah from Washington State after he heard his 14-month-old daughter Kenzie was beaten to death. 

"I'm angry that someone would be willing to hurt a small child that couldn't defend herself," said LaBuy after spending several hours with investigators at the Ogden Police Department.

LaBuy would like Washington State to be his daughter's final resting place. 

"I feel I deserve at least that," he said.

According to police, Kenzie was beaten to death by 23-year-old Adam Joseph Barney.  Police said he confessed to the crime and charged him with aggravated murder.  They upgraded the charge after learning more about the toddler's violent death. 

Charging documents say that on August 24, Barney was watching Kenzie and her two siblings for their mother, who was also his girlfriend.  Barney allegedly told police that he was frustrated over the dirty living conditions and the victim crying.  The document says Barney threw the child on the bed, then, because she was sticky from food, he got in the shower with her and dropped her. 

The document says, "out of frustration, he punched her in the face twice."  Barney then allegedly punched her in the stomach and squeezed her "really hard." 

Ogden Police Lt. Danielle Croyle said after the beating, even though the child was short of breath and lethargic, Barney put her in the stroller and took her and the other two kids out. 

"There was no assistance given to that child to administer first aid or to get her treatment," said Croyle.

LaBuy said before his daughter was born he was lost.  He said Kenzie helped turn his life around. 

"She was my princess," he said. 

LaBuy said he wants Barney to pay for what he allegedly did to his child. 

"He needs to pay for taking my daughter away from me," he said.  

La Buy's family has started a Facebook Page called "Justice for Kenzie."

Community raises thousands after landslide crushes families home
(KUTV) A campaign to help a North Salt Lake family after they lost their home in a landslide has raised more than $337,000

On August 5, the land started to slide up in the Eagle Point Estates area, and one home was flattened.

Sky Properties donated a $130,000 lot to the family who owned the home and asked the community as well as contractors and builders in the area to come forward and help build a $500,000 home for them.
 
The city has said they are not responsible for what happened, even though reports have said the area was at risk for slides.

Click here if you'd like to donate to the family. Donations can also be made at any America First Credit Union in the name "Utrilla Family Relief Fund."
