Chris Attoh's Late Wife Was Married To 2 Men - Greenbelt Police

 US police confirms Chris Attoh's murdered wife Bettie was married to two men
Investigations by the Greenbelt Police Depart has revealed that Bettie Jenifer, the wife of Ghanaian Actor, Chris Attoh, who was shot dead while leaving her office on Friday, May 10th, was married to two men, one of whom is a notorious drug lord currently serving a 20-year jail term.

According to the police, Bettie was still legally married to 47-year-old Kendrick Jenifer, who is currently serving a 20-year prison sentence for importing large amounts of cocaine into Baltimore from Texas. Kendrick ran a drug trafficking organization that distributed at least 450kg of cocaine in Baltimore and Woodbridge, Virginia.
The drug lord and Bettie were not divorced before she went on to marry Chris in a ceremony that happened in October last year. The police say Kendrick filed for divorce on April 9th this year. Bettie Jenifer then filed for divorce six days later.
Police have not named a suspect or motive in the case.

Greenbelt police said 44-year-old Bettie Jenifer of Bowie, left her office in the 6300 blocks of Ivy Lane about 5 p.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.

"The fact that this was in broad daylight, in front of multiple witnesses, whoever did this - it didn't seem to matter to the person who committed this crime. So, that in and of itself is extremely shocking," Greenbelt Police Department spokesperson George Mathews said.

Police confirmed Saturday that Jenifer was married to Chris Attoh, a well-known actor and TV host in Ghana. The two married in October in Ghana, following Attoh's divorce from his first wife, multiple outlets reported.

On Sunday, police said Jenifer was also married to 47-year-old Kendrick 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.

"Kendrick 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 Kendrick Jenifer filed for divorce on April 9.

Bettie Jenifer then filed for divorce six days later. The attorneys involved declined News4's request for comment.

Bettie Jenifer lived in Kendrick Jenifer's house in Bowie.

Greenbelt police confirmed Sunday the shooting was targeted and not a random incident.

Police have not named a suspect or motive in the case.

Coworkers said Bettie Jenifer worked at a temporary staffing agency on the first floor.

A spokesperson for Attoh's talent agency gave the following statement:

"Waka Talent Agency is saddened by the death of Bettie Jenifer, who was married to our client, Mr. Chris Attoh. We would like to note that the family has requested to mourn in private and therefore will not be doing any press interviews or commenting on the death."
