The police in Greenbelt had confirmed on 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.
Police also say 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.
“Kedrick Jenifer lived large as a major Baltimore drug dealer, but now he will lose all of his toys and live for two decades in federal prison,” then-U.S. Attorney Rod Rosenstein said in a news release after his sentencing, according to the Baltimore Sun.
Court records show that Kedrick Jenifer filed for a divorce on April 9. Bettie Jenifer then filed for divorce six days later. The attorneys involved declined News4’s request for comment.
Greenbelt police confirmed Sunday the shooting was targeted and not a random incident.
The Wife of Ghanaian actor, Chris Attoh was married to two men before her death on Friday.
