Teens to be sentenced in WVCPD officer’s death

West Valley City Police Department

SALT LAKE CITY –Three teens convicted in the death of a West Valley City police officer will learn their fate Monday morning.

The boys, ages 14 and 15 at the time, hit Officer Cody Brotherson as he was laying spike strips to stop the stolen car they were using to flee police.

They pleaded guilty on June 28 to their roles in his death — one to murder, one to manslaughter and one to other charges.

Brotherson was attempting to lay down spike strips to stop the car his fellow officers were chasing. At least one officer saw the teens’ vehicle swerve toward Brotherson, striking him and likely killing him on impact.
