FWIW from Wikipedia:
Utah has historically adhered to the principles of "stand your ground" without the need to resort to new legislation.
The use of deadly force to defend persons on one's own property is specifically permitted by Utah state law. The law specifically states that a person does not have a duty to retreat from a place where they have lawfully entered or remained.
From what I have seen, the homeowner has nothing to worry about if the current facts are correct and there was nothing funny going on.
