30-year-old Jennifer Jackson and her father Charles live in Topeka, Kansas, but they do not share the same residence.
On December 11, Jennifer showed up at her dad’s apartment, and she was charged with two counts of criminal trespass.
Early in the day on December 13, Jennifer reportedly went to her father’s apartment and found that he was covered in blood and deceased.
The woman reportedly exited her dad’s residence and began telling passersby that her father was murdered. When the people saw that she had blood all over her, they called for emergency police assistance.
When the authorities arrived, they reportedly saw blood outside of the apartment on the ground, and when they entered the residence Jennifer was reportedly found coated in what was purported to be her father’s blood.
When they checked Charles’ condition, the authorities confirmed that he was deceased, and they believed the cause of death was a homicide.
Due to the prior situation regarding her alleged criminal trespassing two-days before Charles’ purported murder, the police asserted that Jennifer was the most likely person to have committed the crime. They also believe that the woman had pre-planned the event.
Jennifer was taken into custody and booked into the Shawnee County Jail on a $1,000,000 bond.
On December 16, the District Attorney of Shawnee County publicly disclosed his decision to pursue a criminal case against Jennifer Jackson for her alleged participation in her father’s death.
According to the DA’s filing, Jennifer is facing charges for suspicion of felony premeditated first-degree murder, aggravated burglary, and criminal threat.
