American Instagram model and influencer, Courtney Clenney, has been arrested by the Hawaii police for stabbing her boyfriend Christian Toby Obumseli to death in Miami, on 3 April 2022.
The 26-year-old Courtney allegedly stabbed Christian to death with a knife in their luxury Miami apartment during an argument, the two had been together for two years.
She claimed self-defence at the time and was released. But prosecutors recently found evidence to suggest otherwise.
The family of Obumseli had been calling for justice after Courtney was not charged under the Baker Act, over considerations for her mental health, she was officially arrested on Wednesday, and is charged with second-degree murder.
Her arrest was confirmed Wednesday afternoon by her Miami defence lawyer, Frank Prieto, who said she had been in Hawaii while in rehabilitation for substance abuse and post-traumatic stress disorder.
I’m completely shocked, especially since we were cooperating with the investigation and offered to voluntarily surrender her if she were charged. We look forward to clearing her name in court,” the lawyer said.
