Christian Obumseli’s family DEMANDS life sentence for Onlyfans star Courtney Clenney
Clenney has been charged with second-degree murder and if convicted, could face life imprisonment
MIAMI, FLORIDA: After the family of Christian Obumseli demanded the arrest of OnlyFans model Courtney Clenney. She is now charged with second-degree murder with a deadly weapon for fatally stabbing and killing her boyfriend Obumseli on April 3, the family now wants the model to spend her life in prison.
According to NY Post via TMZ, Obumseli's family attorney, Larry Handfield, confirmed that the parents of the 27-year-old want Clenney, who is known as Courtney Tailor, to spend her life in prison and that they are happy that she has been charged with second-degree murder. Because, if convicted of the charge, Clenney could be sentenced to life imprisonment, as per the report.
Responding to this, Clenney's attorney, Frank Prieto, told TMZ, "Although the State Attorney, by law, must consider the wishes of the next of kin in a criminal case, those wishes often have to give way to more reasonable minds." He also said, "While we understand the family is grieving the loss of Mr Obumseli, and they want justice, justice in this matter will be the acquittal of Courtney on all charges."
Obumseli's family outrage
In April, as reported earlier, Obumseli's family was outraged after watching video footage that showed Clenney without "an ounce of remorse" at a Miami bar, where a bystander accused her of killing her boyfriend.
Obumseli's brother Jeffrey Obumseli took to Instagram and wrote, "It’s been a week since my brother was brutally and senselessly killed. Courtney Taylor Clenney’s callous actions have not been met with an ounce of remorse. We’ve seen videos of Courtney kissing her dogs while covered in what we believe to be my brother’s blood and casually getting drinks at a hotel bar days later while my brother lays in the morgue."
What happened on April 3?
Clenney, who has two million followers on Instagram, allegedly stabbed Obumseli in the chest on April 3 following a fight at their apartment building in Miami’s ritzy Edgewater neighborhood. As reported earlier, cops received a call from Clenney at 5 pm on April 3, where the police found her boyfriend was stabbed once in his shoulder.
Clenney's attorney has said that she was forced to stab Obumseli after he grabbed her by the throat. He maintained that the two were estranged at the time of the incident and that Obumseli stalked her for several weeks before attacking her. It has also been reported by her friends that she was the abuser in her relationship with her late boyfriend. However, her legal team has claimed that she is a "victim of domestic violence," but Obumseli's family and friends have denied this claim.
