A man accused of fatally shooting his wife last month while they were riding in a pickup truck in Midvale made his initial appearance in court on Tuesday.
Komasquin Lopez, 43, is charged in 3rd District Court with one count of first-degree felony murder in the death of 32-year-old Shannon Lopez. On Tuesday, he appeared in court and asked for a bond hearing to address the $1 million bail that has been set for him. A hearing was set for Jan. 27.
Initially, police believed Shannon Lopez committed suicide on Dec. 27, when she died from a gunshot while riding in a Dodge pickup driven by her husband. The truck was near the intersection of State Street and 7800 South in Midvale when it crashed.
