Bonneville County man pleads not guilty to murdering longtime girlfriend

A Bonneville County man charged with second-degree murder in the strangulation of his longtime girlfriend appeared in court on Tuesday.

Jeremy J. White pleaded not guilty to the charge in the Bonneville County courtroom of Judge Bruce L. Pickett.

White walked into the courtroom emotionless and handcuffed. Before taking a seat, White looked over at the victims’ family, making eye contact with the children.

According to court documents, White strangled Christin Caldwell and then buried her in the basement of the home they shared in rural Bonneville County. Investigators said Caldwell had recently discovered that White was having an affair with another woman.

The Bonneville County Prosecutor’s Office said White and that woman, Deena Aday, met at a gas station and went back to White’s home.

Investigators said they believe Caldwell had already been murdered and buried in the basement. The two packed up belongings and left the state. They were arrested in Nevada nearly two weeks later.

Aday is charged with accessory to a felony for not turning in White. Prosecutors do not believe that Aday took part in Caldwell’s murder. She is currently out on bond.

Pickett on Tuesday set a July 10 trial date for White.
