An Idaho homicide suspect was arrested in Pahrump Friday.

The Nye County Sheriff's Office was notified by investigators in Idaho Falls that 39-year-old Jeremy James White was possibly visiting family members in Pahrump and was wanted for murder in Idaho.

The Nye County Sheriff's Office subsequently began assisting Idaho authorities in attempting to locate White. On Friday, Nye County detectives observed White's vehicle leaving a residence in Pahrump.

A felony traffic stop was conducted on White's vehicle in the area of Mount Charleston Drive and Red Butte Street. White was taken into custody without incident and booked into the Nye County Detention Center on the second-degree homicide warrant.

There was a female passenger in the vehicle who was questioned and subsequently released. However, Nye County Sheriff's Office coordinated with authorities in Idaho who obtained a warrant for 49-year-old Deena Aday's arrest, relating to being an accessory to a felony crime.

Investigators are coordinating with Idaho Falls authorities to complete the investigation. White was booked into the Nye County Detention Center and is expected to be extradited to Idaho.

Anyone with information regarding this case is asked to contact the Nye County Sheriff's Office at 775-751-7000.
