JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -

A 30-year-old woman is charged with murder in the death of a 50-year-old man earlier this month in a Dinsmore house.

Jacksonville police said Casie White hit Benjamin Craft in the head with a vase Sept. 2 inside a vacant home on Barth Road, killing him.

Police said White, who was already in jail in Nassau County on a false identity charge, confessed to the killing.

Police initially thought Craft's death was a suicide, but they later determined he was killed in a domestic altercation.

Investigators said Craft had been staying at the home for the last few months in exchange for construction work.
