It's tough to follow the news when you're finally off the clock and have time for yourself and your family. Rewind will help you catch up with all the happenings in Utah over the weekend.

Utah same-sex marriage case could be thrown out on a technicality • Although few believe it poses a serious threat to the case's trajectory — likely headed to the U.S. Supreme Court by summer — the question persists: Could Kitchen v. Herbert be thrown out because the lawsuit targeted the wrong people?

Swallow warrants went to Google, Yahoo and Apple • Investigators in the ongoing criminal probe of former Utah Attorneys General John Swallow and Mark Shurtleff are wading through what appears to be a massive amount of data obtained through a series of sweeping search warrants.

Utah Realtors give 'murder homes' another life • Payson ยป When a California couple pulled up Kay Mortensen's winding driveway, they found the for-sale sign — peppered with bullet holes — lying in the bushes. It had been about two years since someone tied up the retired Brigham Young University professor in his Payson Canyon home and killed him. The murder was widely publicized, and while Mortensen's family tried to move on, there was the matter of trying to get someone to buy his house with its grisly story.

Utah day laborers lining up for more 'doing' • There is a daily theater around Home Depots, where a drama continually plays out about immigration, work, a sluggish economy and stores seeking a balance between making customers comfortable without appearing too mean to struggling laborers.

Easter gift for Pakistani Christian: his new Utah home • Holladay • As Saman Lall joins other Utah Christians celebrating Jesus Christ's resurrection on this spring-dappled Sunday, you could say the Pakistani educator has been reborn himself. This is, after all, Lall's first Easter in a country where freedom of religion is a bedrock principle, where all varieties of believers worship freely.
