A man that was accused of murdering an Ogden woman was found dead in his jail cell this last November. Jeffrey White had apparently hanged himself in his jail cell after being booked into the Weber County Jail on charges of murder, and domestic violence in the presence of a child. White apparently had a history of domestic violence against his live in girlfriend and after an argument in October things escalated to the point where White strangled his girlfriend and shortly thereafter she was rushed to the hospital where she passed.
