PROVO, Utah — Jurors will be allowed to hear about Facebook posts and love notes that prosecutors say help show a teenage girl was a willing participant in a crime spree that claimed the lives of a deputy and the teen's boyfriend.

The Daily Herald of Provo reports that (http://bit.ly/1DnNgIY ) state Judge Darold McDade ruled Tuesday in Provo. Prosecutors say the evidence shows Megan Grunwald was dating Jose Garcia-Jauregui.

Judge McDade also decided that jurors will be able to hear a story about Garcia-Jauregui pulling a gun on Grunwald's father weeks before the January 2014 events. Prosecutors say Grunwald sided with her boyfriend, showing her allegiance.

Grunwald is accused of being the driver in the crime spree. She has pleaded not guilty to the charges against her, which include aggravated murder.
