IDAHO FALLS — A pretrial conference for an Idaho Falls woman who is a co-defendant in a murder case was continued Tuesday.

Deena Aday is charged with accessory to a felony after she allegedly withheld information from officers regarding the murder of Christin Caldwell.

Jeremy White, 39, is accused of killing and burying his fiance, Christin Caldwell, 45 at their Bonneville County home last fall.

Bonneville County Prosecutor Danny Clark tells EastIdahoNews.com Aday is accused of accessory because of withholding information from police, but has since cooperated with investigators.

“She’s cooperated with police giving evidence and information to them in order to facilitate the successful prosecution of Mr. White,” Clark said.

White pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in July and admitted to strangling Caldwell to death. He is scheduled to be sentenced next week and could face up to 45 years in prison.

“The decisions on how to proceed with her are being made after Mr. White’s case is completed,” Clark said.

Court records show White and Aday left the Idaho Falls area Nov. 9. A nationwide manhunt ensued shortly before the couple was arrested on Nov. 25 in Pahrump, Nevada.

Aday is scheduled to appear in court on Sept. 28.
