An OnlyFans model who fatally stabbed her boyfriend could be facing life in prison.
Courtney Clenney, 26, was taken into custody Wednesday 10 August, in Hawaii for the offence of second-degree murder.
She is said to have stabbed her boyfriend Christian Obumseli, following a domestic dispute and now could be facing life behind bars.
The incident occurred back in April, with Clenney, known professionally as Courtney Tailor, expected to be extradited to Florida for a trial.
Police confirmed her arrest in a statement, saying: "Members of the Hawaii Police Department assisted and stood by while Clenney was taken into custody by the United States Marshals Service.
"She was arrested on the strength of an arrest warrant issued by Miami-Dade County, Florida, for the offense of murder in the second degree with a deadly weapon."
Clenney's attorney Frank Prieto confirmed her arrest, saying: "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 attorney argued that Clenney acted in self defence, however, Obumseli's family believe that was not the case.
Karen Egbuna, a cousin of Obumseli told CBS Miami: "We have no cause to believe that this was a case of self-defence. Toby was raised with a, by a very strong family with strong morals, strong values, he does not come from that."
The family's attorney, Larry Handfield, went on to tell TMZ that the family wants justice in the form of a life sentence.
Handfield has previously criticised police in the case, saying that they were influenced by Clenney's 'blonde hair and blue eyes'.
He also noted the fact that she has an open warrant in California for a 2015 public intoxication case.
She was also arrested in Texas in September 2020 for driving under the influence, according to court documents.
The case remains ongoing, but Clenney's attorney, Prieto, maintains that she acted in self-defence and said that while the wishes of the family will be taken into consideration, he was hoping for acquittal: "Although the State Attorney, by law, must consider the wishes of the next of kin a criminal case, those wishes often have to give way to more reasonable minds.
"While we understand the family is grieving the loss of Mr. Obumseli, and they want justice, justice in this matter will be the acquittal of Courtney on all charges."
