J V M M Ml ,i ; I i Details of students murder given during preliminary trial By Devon Crus editor in chief The Signpost The court decided Wednesday to move charges stemming from 22-year-old Daniel David Montgomery's murder forward to trial. Testimony included statements made by Richard Ivan Rios to Ogden authorities the day after Montgomery's death and physical evidence implicating Rios. "First thing I said was, T know you were there last night. What the hell happened?'" said Steve Zaccardi, an Ogden police detective, about when he questioned Rios. What unfolded was Rios' perspective of the events of Sept. 21 . According to a four-page signed statement by Rios, the confrontation began when Montgomery and two of Montgomery's friends approached Rios and his three companions. According to Rios' statement, Montgomery and his friends were confrontational and made accusations that Rios and his friends tried to steal a car earlier in the evening. "I thought the dude was gonna do something, so I did something," Rios said " asked 'Did you stab him?' He said, Yes" Steve Zaccardi Ogden police detective in his statement. That "something" included stabbing Montgomery five times with a silver butterfly knife after holding the same knife to John Stanley's throat, a friend of Montgomery, of which Rios said he could not completely remember. "I don't know what I was thinking. It was all just a blur," Rios said in his statement. Originally Rios told authorities he used only his fist to strike Montgomery. However, police told Rios his story did not match with the wounds inflicted upon Montgomery. "I know you've been truthful with us to a point, but you need to come clean," Zaccardi testified he told Rios. This prompted Rios to admit the severity of what he had done. "I asked, 'Did you stab him?' He said, 'Yes,'" Zaccardi said. Physical evidence was also brought before the court to" show need for a trial. When Zaccardi first began to question Rios, he said Rios had a duffel bag with him. In the See Murder page 3 ...rri r."i ;.,'. IP t , . w 1 ,;. i "V 4"'' J . . .

|Description||Weber's current student newspaper, the Signpost, first appeared on September 29, 1937. For two years prior to that time, campus news was disseminated via announcements posted on a bulletin board known as the "Signpost". As a result, the masthead of the first issue of the paper itself featured a rudimentary wooden sign with the title spelled out in rustic-looking letters. Over the years the paper has been published continuously, though the look, size and style has changed several times.|
