A 43-year-old Ogden man has been charged with fatally beating his live-in girlfriend at their home.

Jeffery Dean White was charged Friday in 2nd District Court with one count of first-degree felony murder for the Oct. 20 death of 38-year-old Marnie Stark.

White also is charged with two counts of third-degree domestic violence in the presence of a child.

White’s two children, ages 7 and 9, were present in the home during an argument that night between White and Stark, in which he admitted they were arguing loudly and throwing things at each other, according to court documents.

White also told police that he and Stark had "rough sex," which included him choking her, shortly before he called 911 at about 10:15 p.m.

Stark was pronounced dead at McKay-Dee Hospital Center.

An autopsy showed that Stark died from a lacerated liver caused by blunt force trauma. The medical examiner said the injury was consistent with punches or kicks.

White is scheduled to appear in court Oct. 29.
