Police has revealed that, Chris Attoh’s murdered wife, Bettie Jenifer who was gunned down while leaving her office on Friday, was married to two different men simultaneously, one of whom is a convicted Baltimore drug lord, serving a 20-year jail term.
The Greenbelt police in a statement released, describing how the 44-year-old Bettie Jenifer was killed, said that she left her office in the 6300 block of Ivy Lane about 5p.m. and was walking to her car when a man armed with a handgun approached her.
When she tried to run away, the man followed her and fired multiple rounds. At least one bullet struck her in the head, police said.
The suspect took off in a vehicle. Police described the suspect as black and having a thin build with black hair. He was wearing dark clothing and may have been in a blue car.
Police confirmed Saturday that Jenifer was married to Chris Attoh , a well-known actor and TV host in Ghana. The two married in October, following Attoh’s divorce from his first wife, multiple outlets reported.
On Sunday, police said Jenifer was also married to 47-year-old Kedrick Jenifer, who is currently serving a 20-year prison sentence for importing large amounts of cocaine into Baltimore from Texas.
The U.S. District Attorney’s Office said the kingpin’s “Jenifer drug trafficking organization” distributed at least 450 kilograms of cocaine in Baltimore and Woodbridge, Virginia.
