Documents do not describe what evidence has been found and police and prosecutors have not said how the accused technician Ayoola Ajayi and Lueck were connected or revealed a motive for the murder
A lawyer for Ajayi, 31, did not immediately answer a call to request comment.
Ajayi is an IT employee who had stints at high-profile companies and was briefly in the National Guard of the Army.
Lueck disappeared shortly after she returned from a trip to her birthplace in California for her grandmother's funeral and took a Lyft from the airport to a park.
She exchanged text messages with Ajayi and met him in the park, apparently voluntarily, but her phone was switched off one minute after the last text message and was not switched on again, prosecutors have said.
The police said the 23-year-old Lueck was last seen in Ajayi's car on 17 June. She was reported missing three days later.
Lueck was recovered earlier this month from Logan Canyon, 85 miles north of Salt Lake City. The police say that Lueck's body was found with her arms tied behind her.
The police accused Ajayi of her murder after some of her remains and possessions were buried in his backyard. The police did not reveal what the items are.
He did not speak this month and did not advocate murder, kidnapping and other charges.
Lueck was a member of the Alpha Chi Omega women's club and a part-time senior at the University of Utah who studied kinesiology and pre-nursing

Investigators have said they are investigating a report from a contractor who said that Ajayi approached him in April about building a secret and soundproof room in his house.
Lueck is remembered as a vibrant, caring person who enjoyed spending time with her family and was looking forward to a career in medicine or healthcare.
Lueck, born in California, was a member of the Alpha Chi Omega student club and part-time senior at the University of Utah, studied kinesiology and pre-nursing.
She would graduate in the spring of 2020.

After the arrest of Ajayi, court documents revealed that he was banned from the campus of Utah State University in 2012. The school took the step after Ajayi's student visa had expired and he was arrested on suspicion of a stolen iPad.
The Los Angeles Times reported that the police said he used the device to play video games and find a wife to prevent him from being deported – even though he was already married.
He was no longer there the year before, but stayed on the couches in the residence and kept things in the closet of a caretaker, according to police and university documents.
Prison documents show that Ajayi, a Nigerian citizen, is now an American citizen.
At the time of his arrest in 2012, police documents indicated that his student visa had expired, but he was married to a woman in Texas. That marriage ended in divorce in January, according to court reports.
Ajayi was allowed to re-register for classes in 2015 after he had resolved his immigration status.
His ex-wife Tenisha Ajayi told KUTV that the marriage ended after he became controlling and insulting and forbade her from talking to other people and eventually threatened to have her abducted and killed.
Individual police documents show that he was also investigated for a rape charge in 2014, but no charges were filed in the rape case.
