A man accused of murdering an Ogden woman was found dead in jail Wednesday night.

It appears Jeffrey Dene White died by hanging, according to Lt. Mark Lowther, Weber County Sheriff’s Office.

White, 43, was booked into the Weber County Jail and charged with murder, a first-degree felony, and two counts of commission of domestic violence in the presence of a child, a third-degree felony.

The victim, 38-year-old Marnie Stark, was pronounced dead at McKay-Dee Hospital on Oct. 20. Police say two children under the age of 10 were present during the incident.

The medical examiner is investigating White’s official cause of death.

The Weber County Attorney is also investigating as his death occurred while he was in custody.
