CHRISTIAN Obumseli’s heartbroken family have insisted OnlyFans model Courtney Clenney should be jailed for life for his murder.
Disturbing footage has since emerged, showing her allegedly attacking Obumseli in an elevator just a month before he was killed on April 3.
The clip, from a private elevator, shows Clenney repeatedly striking Obumseli – sometimes in the head – as he tries to push her away.
Clenney was this week detained in Hawaii and taken to a mental institution before being charged with murder.
She was pictured sobbing in a disheveled mugshot as the investigation into Obumseli’s death continues.
Clenney initially claimed self-defense but her arrest was confirmed on Wednesday afternoon by her defense lawyer Frank Prieto.
He said: “I’m completely shocked, especially since we were cooperating with the investigation and offered to voluntarily surrender her if she were charged.”
Obumseli’s devastated family have now demanded Clenney spend the rest of her life behind bars, according to their attorney Larry Handfield.
He told TMZ they were pleased she has been charged with second-degree murder as they want her to be handed a life sentence.

But Prieto has said Clenney should be acquitted.
He told the outlet: “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.”
Clenney was pictured handcuffed and drenched in blood moments after her boyfriend, Obumseli, was stabbed to death.
Shocking footage obtained by TMZ appeared to show her in a distressed state wearing a black crop top and white pants as she spoke to officers.
Police responded to a 911 call from Clenney on that Sunday around 5pm local time at a luxury apartment building.
They found her boyfriend stabbed once in the shoulder.
Obumseli was rushed to a nearby hospital, where he died from his injuries.
Clenney had posted multiple chilling messages in the days and hours before allegedly killing her boyfriend.
