At approximately 7 p.m. Tuesday, July 23, 2013, and without incident, detectives arrested Vilisoni Angilau (01/14/1993) at his place of employment in West Jordan. They booked him into the Salt Lake County Jail on one count of murder, a first-degree felony, and one count of obstruction of justice, a second-degree felony.
