OGDEN, Utah (AP) - Weber County prosecutors are investigating after a murder suspect was found dead in his solitary cell.
Deputies at the Weber County jail say they found 43-year-old Ogden resident Jeffery Dean White unresponsive in his cell a little after 9 p.m. Wednesday. Sheriff's officials say it appears he died of hanging.
White was arrested last month after the death of his 38-year-old live-in girlfriend Marnie Stark. A medical examiner says she died of internal injuries consistent with being punched or kicked.
Court records say the couple had been fighting before Stark's death. White was later arrested and charged with murder and two counts of domestic violence in the presence of a child.
Ogden police said two children under the age of 10 were at the scene when the alleged crime happened.
