LOGAN – Cache County Sheriffs have arrested an 18-year-old male in connection with a fatal accident, 2-weeks-ago, that killed Duane Labrum of Hyrum.

Emiliano Guereca was booked into the Cache County Jail Monday afternoon. He’s being charged with automobile homicide and driving under the influence. Both are third-degree felonies.
