Body found in submerged car

GILLETTE -- Authorities say a 48-year-old man who was reported missing Sunday night has been found dead in a submerged car in a reservoir west of Gillette.

Deputies found the body of Glenn Fogle on Monday afternoon, and investigators are trying to determine if a medical condition caused the Gillette man to crash into the water. Campbell County Undersheriff Scott Matheny said skid marks blackened the roadway a few hundred yards from the reservoir. They then led down a hill, up an embankment and through a fence before disappearing into the water.

Two burned at refinery

RAWLINS -- Two workers were injured during a brief fire at the same refinery near Rawlins where four workers were injured in another blaze last month.

Sinclair Oil. Corp. spokesman Clint Ensign said the fire happened Friday night. He says the fire that injured the two workers was limited to a pump and that the refinery is in operation.

One worker was treated and immediately released from a hospital and that the other worker was released Monday.

A fire on May 8 at the refinery about five miles east of Rawlins injured four workers. The Wyoming Occupational and Safety Health Administration is investigating that fire and citations against the refinery are possible.

Death penalty sought in case

POWELL -- Prosecutors say they will seek the death penalty in a first-degree murder case against a 29-year-old Cody man accused of stabbing his wife to death with a screwdriver.

Park County Attorney Bryan Skoric filed court documents last week calling the slaying of 44-year-old Julie Friday "especially atrocious or cruel, being unnecessarily torturous."
