A 52-year-old Texan man named Keith Smith and his 28-year-old daughter Valeria were arrested for having staged the murder of Ms Jacquelyn Smith.
Mr Smith cooperated with his own daughter to murder his second wife and told police in December of 2018 she had been attacked in their car when offering a homeless person money.
Acting Baltimore Commissioner Michael Harrison said Keith Smith and his adult daughter have now been charged with Jacquelyn Smith’s murder.
Reporting on the news at the time sparked fear of homeless residents in the area as the daughter and father gave a tearful press conference claiming that the woman was murdered while they were all in the car together.
