“That’s all part of the investigation. As far as I know, [Attoh is] fully cooperating.
“This happened in broad daylight, in front of multiple witnesses, right in front of an office complex. Around 5 p.m. Friday, Jenifer walked out of the office building and headed to her car. She saw a man with a gun and started running.
“She was chased by the suspect who fired multiple shots at the victim striking her twice, once fatally in the head,” George Matthews said.
According to reports, Bettie was shot dead while leaving her office in Maryland in the United States of America.
Following her death, revelations emerged that Jenifer was married to two men, Ghanaian actor, Chris Attoh, 39, and Kedrick Jenifer, a drug lord in Baltimore.
