CHRISTIAN Obumseli’s heartbroken family have insisted OnlyFans model Courtney Clenney should be jailed for life for his murder.
Clenney, 25, known on social media as Courtney Tailor, was arrested on Wednesday after she allegedly stabbed her boyfriend to death at her Miami apartment months ago.
Since then, disturbing footage has emerged showing her allegedly attacking Obumseli in an elevator just a month before his death on April 3.
Clip from a private elevator shows Clenney repeatedly punching Obumseli – sometimes in the head – as he tries to push her away.
Clenney was arrested in Hawaii this week and placed in a mental institution before being charged with murder.
She was pictured sobbing in a disheveled mug shot as the investigation into Obumseli’s death continues.
Clenney initially claimed to have defended herself, but her arrest was confirmed by her defense attorney, Frank Prieto, on Wednesday afternoon.
He said: “I am completely shocked, especially as we have cooperated with the investigation and have offered to hand her over voluntarily if she is charged.”
Obumseli’s devastated family have now demanded that Clenney spend the rest of her life behind bars, according to her lawyer Larry Handfield.
He told TMZ they were delighted that she was charged with second-degree murder as they would be seeking a life sentence for her.
But Prieto said Clenney should be acquitted.
He told the outlet: “Although the law requires the prosecutor to consider the wishes of the next of kin as a criminal matter, those wishes often have to give way to more reasonable minds.
“While we understand that the family is mourning the loss of Mr. Obumseli and they want justice, justice in this matter will mean Courtney’s acquittal on all charges.”
Clenney was pictured handcuffed and soaked in blood shortly after her boyfriend Obumseli was stabbed.
Shocking footage obtained by TMZ appeared to show her in a distressed state, in a black crop top and white trousers, as she spoke to officers.
Police responded to an emergency call from Clenney at a luxury apartment building around 5 p.m. local time this Sunday.
They found their friend stabbed once in the shoulder.
Obumseli was taken to a nearby hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries.
Clenney had posted several chilling messages in the days and hours leading up to her boyfriend’s alleged murder.
