According to multiple reports, the wife of Ghanaian actor Chris Attoh has been shot and reportedly killed in Maryland, USA
The wife, Bettie Jenifer was shot dead in the parking lot of her office building.
According to NBC Washington, The woman, identified as 44-year-old Bettie Jenifer of Bowie, had left the office in the 6300 block of Ivy Lane and was walking to her car when a man armed with a handgun approached her, the Greenbelt Police Department said. When she tried to run away, the man followed her and fired off multiple rounds, with at least one shot striking her. He then fled in a vehicle.
The tragic incident happened yesterday, 10th of May, 2019.
There was a post on Twitter by Jackie Bensen, who is an NBC reporter also confirming the murder.
She tweeted: “NEW: victim of tonight’s fatal shooting in Greenbelt identified as Bettie Jenifer (44) of Bowie, MD. Story below references her 2018 marriage to a famous actor from
This follows rumours that she and Chris Attoh were getting a divorce, following the actor’s decision to delete all of her photos from his Instagram account.
The pair got married in 2018, a couple of months after Chris Attoh finalized his divorce from fellow actor, Damilola Adegbite.
There are also reports claiming that Chris Attoh has jetted off to Maryland following the news of his wife’s murder. The report indicates that the Ghanaian actor was in Los Angeles shooting a new movie when the news got to him forcing him to cut short the project and fly off to the scene.
So far, the actor has said nothing about his wife’s demise but we can probably expect a response of some sort soon.
This is rather tragic news and we pray that the soul of the deceased rests in perfect peace.
