Roosevelt City police arrested Karla Asencion Einerson July 5, after she stole a car and went in search of her three children.
Einerson was headed to her brother's house. P.B. had picked up her children in Myton after one of them called to let him know they wouldn't see him that night because their mom, Einerson, was going to kill them.
According to the statement from RPD officer Joshua Christensen, Einerson told P.B. she was going to shoot her children, he drove them to his home for safety. Einerson called P.B. and demanded the children be returned. A tracking app alerted P.B. that Einerson was driving towards his house, so he contacted dispatch and alerted he thought his sister was armed and had made threatening statements.
P.B. put the children in his car and headed to the Roosevelt City Police Department.
In the meantime, Uintah County dispatch coordinated with RPD to track the victims and the alleged assailant. Officer Christensen initiated a traffic stop of the vehicle Einerson was driving on Lagoon Street. She got out of the vehicle and told the officer that "the guy in the white truck has my kids."
Officer Christensen told Einerson to wait in the vehicle while he worked with dispatch to figure out what was going on. She returned to the vehicle and sped off, running a stop sign in the process. She continued following her brother, who had driven to the Roosevelt Police Department. Officer Christensen pursued Einerson and detained her.
While the officer had her detained, Deputy Burr of the Duchesne County Sheriff's Office arrived and took statements from Einerson's children. According to the kids, she forced her children to start walking to the cemetery in Myton earlier in the day, telling them she was going to kill them there. The children fled to a family member's house despite being threatened by Einerson that she would "shoot them in the head" if they went.
The official statement further stated that shortly afterwards, Einerson arrived at the family member's house, where she assaulted her children, and assaulted the family member. One of the children called their uncle, P.B., and told him that their mom was going to kill them. P.B. picked them up and left.
Einerson was charged with theft of a firearm or operable vehicle, child abuse with injury- intentional or knowing, three counts of threats of violence, three counts of domestic violence in the presence of a child, failure to respond to officers signal to stop, speeding, and failure to stop at right-of-way stop signs.
Due to their visible injuries, the children received medical attention and the Department of Children and Family Services was notified.
Einerson was ordered to be held without bail due to the likelihood of violence against others and being a flight risk.
