Makeva Jenkins

Died on June 29, 2017
She was shot in unincorporated Palm Beach County.
Makeva Jenkins, 33, was shot and killed in her home near Lake Worth early June 29, 2017. Investigators said that a masked man entered the home, shot the pregnant mother of three in the head and fled. Months later, authorities arrested then-19-year-old Joevan Joseph and shortly after they charged Jenkins' husband, Euri Jenkins, in connection to her death. Authorities allege that Jenkins hired Joseph to kill his wife. In July 2019 Jenkins pleaded guilty to second-degree murder, a deal made possible only if he testifies truthfully against Euri Jenkins in the trial slated for January 2020. After the trial Joseph will be sentenced to no fewer than five years and no more than 20 years.
