A man has been charged with domestic violence after his wife - whom he had married two weeks ago - suffered a serious fall in a garage in St. Louis, Missouri, and died last weekend.
Allissa L. Jenkins, 27, was found dead by police Sunday morning on a parking lot ramp at Busch Stadium, where she and her husband Bradley S. Jenkins, 30, went to a game of baseball the night before.
According to an affidavit obtained by PEOPLE, they received a 911 call alerting them that there was a dead woman who had fallen in the garage. When they arrived, they found Bradley standing next to Alissa's body, which was covered in blood according to officers. Bradley "was agitated and appeared to be intoxicated," according to this police report.
The victim's cell phone was found on the seventh floor of the garage, just above the level where his body had been found. In the recording, Alissa comes out in front of the camera and then shows her husband's face, accusing him of physically assaulting her. "In the recording you can hear her yelling at him to stop hitting him in the face," this police document quotes. "Eventually she drops the camera, and shortly afterward you hear how she screams when she falls and you hear the sound of her body hitting the ground."
According to authorities, Bradley told several lies in his testimony, denying that he had been on the roof of the garage with her and that the fight between them had been violent, although the video shows that it was so. The man faces charges of domestic violence and the case is being investigated to determine if he will be charged with murder for the death of his wife.
The couple married in Las Vegas on May 22 and got engaged in October 2018. The young woman had written a romantic post on Instagram after her wedding, saying she had married "to her best friend." Rest in peace.
