Ogden police on Thursday arrested a man on suspicion of killing his live-in girlfriend.

Ogden Lt. Danielle Croyle said detectives arrested Jeffrey Dene White, 43, on suspicion of first-degree felony murder and two counts of commission of domestic violence in the presence of a child, both third-degree felonies.

Croyle said police received a call about 10:15 p.m. Saturday about a suspicious death. They found Marnie Stark, 38, inside the home in the 1300 block of Douglas Avenue. She was pronounced dead at McKay-Dee Hospital

Croyle said an autopsy determined Stark's death was a homicide, though Croyle would not say how Stark was killed.

She said White's two children, who are both under the age of 10, were home at the time of the violence. Croyle would not say whether the children witnessed what happened. She said the children have been turned over to family.jstecklein@sltrib.com
