Based on a plea agreement, Deena Aday was sentenced to 180 days in jail on misdemeanor charges of obstruction of justice this week.
She was given credit for 30 days already served and the balance of the jail term was suspended. The sentence included two years of probation and a $300 fine.
Bonneville County Prosecutor Daniel Clark said Aday was arrested with Jeremy White in Nevada in December of 2016. White was a suspect in connection with the death of Christine Caldwell. Her body was found in a shallow grave at a home she shared with White near Idaho Falls.
White pleaded guilty to second degree murder and was sentenced to 45 years in jail, 15 years fixed, after pleading guilty to the crime last summer.
Aday was initially charged with a felony for refusing to answer police questions during her initial arrest in Nevada. Clark said she did give law enforcement a full statement thereafter that helped assist in White’s prosecution, which led to the misdemeanor plea agreement.
