By Jennifer Smith For Dailymail. Jacquelyn Smith, 54, was killed in December last year in Baltimore, Maryland. He drove her to the hospital but she was pronounced dead. Keith was previously arrested for robbing a bank three times in and He told police when they arrested him that he was struggling to pay his bills after being laid off as a FedEx driver because he had too many points on his license.
He also said that he was struggling to raise his daughter alone and that he needed money for HIV treatment which he had been recently diagnosed with. On Monday, they were charged with Jacquelyn's murder and for lying to the police. Police arrested them near the border in Texas and say they were planning on fleeing the country.
Investigators have not yet suggested what their motive might be for the alleged killing. On Tuesday, Jacquelyn's mother Anna Trisvane reacted to news of their arrests with relief.
She said their story did not add up from the beginning because her daughter was a cautious woman who would not have given money to a person in the street in the way Keith claimed she had. Keith Smith, 52,and his daughter Valeria Smith, 28, were charged with murder. Jacquelyn's mother Anna Trisvane right says she was suspicious of her son-in-law from the beginning. I knew it was not real. Keith told officers that the female panhandler was pretending to hold a baby and that she were holding up a sign asking for money for food.
He claimed his goodhearted wife was so touched that she asked him to stop the car and let her roll down the window to help her, something her mother says has always sounded unlikely to her. She doesn't like things like that. Jacquelyn and her husband had been married less than five years. Her mother said she had never met his daughter and went two years without seeing her not long before her death.
She liked everybody. She was just a good persona and she believed in God a lot,' she said. Her mother had never met his daughter.
Keith and his daughter are shown after Jacquelyn's funeral. Police have not yet suggested their alleged motive for killing her.
The last time she spoke to her daughter's husband was at her funeral where she told him: 'I gave you a beautiful daughter and you let her die like that, I know she didn't deserve to die the way she died. Keith told police that when his wife rolled down her window to give the beggar some money, a man appeared out of nowhere, grabbed her necklace and purse, stabbed her repeatedly then fled. He said he and his wife had been dancing to their wedding song, John Legend's 'All of Me', hours earlier and played the part of a grieving husband.
He spoke to news crews outside his wife's funeral and consoled his own daughter who wept in front of the cameras. I hope it was worth it because you're going to answer to that one day,' he said in one interview. He claimed the murder took place here, in this street in Baltimore, as they drove back from dinner.
