According to a new report by NBC News, on Sunday, police said Chris Attoh’s late wife, Bettie Jenifer was also married to 47-year-old Kedrick ‘Pretty Ricky’ 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.

“Kedrick 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,” U.S. Attorney Rod Rosenstein said in a news release after his sentencing, according to the Baltimore Sun.

Court records show that Kedrick Jenifer filed for a divorce on April 9. Bettie Jenifer then filed for divorce six days later.  The attorneys involved declined News4’s request for comment.

Pretty Ricky flooded the streets of B-More and Woodbridge, VA, from September 2012 until October 2014, when he and eight others in his organization were arrested. However, he got on law enforcement’s radar In October 2009, when he and Tyrone Allen were stopped in Phoenix, en route to Cali. The cops seized $97,020 and three cellphones from the boss and $70,680 and eight cellphones Allen.

According to DEA reports, Pretty Ricky orchestrated the transportation of cocaine and cash between Houston and Baltimore in secret compartments of vehicles. Sometimes, the vehicles were transported on car carriers. The money and product would be brought to a business complex called RCH Plaza on West Franklin Street in Baltimore for stashing, as well as with the homes of the defendants  and their family members.

In September 2012, Brooke Lunn and a man named John Moore got popped near Houston with 30 keys stashed in the whip they were in. Tracy Muse, believed to be Pretty Ricky’s girl, posted their bond and they returned to Maryland. A little less than a month later, Moore was shot in the head in Baltimore.

In July 2013, a vehicle transported on a Houston car carrier by Pretty Ricky’s outfit was searched by the Arkansas Highway Patrol. It was on its way back to Baltimore from Houston. The boys found 23.8 kilos stashed inside. Afterwards, in August of that year, Pretty Ricky went back to using Lunn to make runs, who is believed to have made 30 trips between the cities. According to the DEA,  the crew pumped 750 keys of cocaine from then until October 2014, according to the DEA.

In June 2014, the feds peeped Thomas Simmons hand Pretty Ricky a black bag in a Woodbridge parking lot. The Virginia State Police pulled Simmons over 60 miles from that spot, and found two kilos inside another black bag, which was in a stash box.

Back in October 2014, when search warrants were executed, 27 kilos of coke were seized along with hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash, guns and $2 million in jewelry, including a 16 carat diamond ring. Pretty Ricky’s businesses–Baltimore clothing store World Fed Apparel, Inc. and a Fells Point  Rita’s Water Ice–were also shuttered, as money laundering ventures. Pretty Ricky also lost a fleet of luxury vehicles, including a boat along with a 2013 Rolls Royce Ghost valued at $296,000, 2014 Ferrari 458 Italia valued at $271,000, 2014 BMW M6 valued at $113,925, 2015 Ford F-250 truck valued at $56,000, a 2012 Acura ZDX, a 2010 Honda Crosstour, a 2006 Acura and a 2009 GMC Denali truck.

Jenifer pleaded guilty, then, to cocaine distribution conspiracy charges.

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

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

Co-workers 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.”
