Bettie Jenifer, wife of Ghanaian actor, Chris Attoh, has been shot dead in Maryland, USA.
According to the reports, Bettie was shot dead on Friday as she was leaving her office in Maryland.
She had closed from her office in the 6300 blocks of Ivy Lane around 5pm and was walking towards her car when she was approached by a gunman. She reportedly ran as the gunman approached but he chased her and shot her several times. She was declared dead when she was rushed to the hospital.
