YAKIMA, Wash. -- Investigators say a Utah man turned himself in to Yakima police Friday and provided information that led authorities to his girlfriend's dead body.

Steven Grey is now a murder suspect in the death of 44-year-old Jennifer Brackenbury.

Police in Orem, Utah received word from Yakima Police just before noon Friday that Grey had turned himself in.

Utah investigators say Steven Grey told YPD there was a body inside his trailer near Salt Lake City.

When police arrived at that trailer, they found the body of Grey's girlfriend and say she was stabbed several times. The two lived together.

Authorities believe the victim was killed between Saturday and Tuesday and was dead for days before she was found.

Grey is from Washington, although it's not clear whether he is from Yakima, police said.

After the murder, police tell us that Grey drove from Utah to Yakima.

KIMA learned Grey was a suspect in a rape case back in September but was never charged.

Utah detectives are now travelling to Yakima to begin the extradition process.

Grey is currently booked into Yakima County Jail and will also face obstruction charges for fleeing Utah.

He is expected to appear in Yakima County Superior Court Monday.
