On April 3, police in Miami were called to the apartment of Courtney Clenney, 26, after her boyfriend, Christian Tobechukwu “Toby” Obumseli, 27, suffered “an apparent knife wound” during a domestic violence incident, authorities said.

Obumseli was rushed to an area hospital, where he died from his injury.

The Miami Police Department never charged Clenney with any crime and closed the case within 24 hours after the stabbing. At the end of April, however, authorities announced they were reopening the investigation.

“[I]t received national exposure and outcry from…everyone who believed it was clear she is being treated with privilege," Obumseli family lawyer Larry Handfield told Fox News Digital. "She had been treated contrary to [how] any other person would have been treated. And so at this point, I am confident that if a total objective, clear investigation is done, that she will be arrested."

In April, Clenney’s lawyer, Frank Prieto, claimed his client acted in self-defense and said Obumseli’s family’s “calls for justice and an arrest in this matter are misplaced.”


“It is absolutely irresponsible for the family’s attorney … to allege that the events of that evening were ‘unprovoked’ or to insinuate that she is being afforded special treatment,” Prieto said, according to Fox News.

“There is competent and substantial evidence that Courtney is the victim of domestic violence and possibly human trafficking,” the attorney continued. “There is no doubt the two of them had a tumultuous relationship; moreover, there is evidence that Courtney was a victim of physical, emotional, and mental abuse at the hands of Obumseli. That night was no different and Courtney had the right to defend herself out of fear for her life."

Miami police have released few details about the case.
