Maryland woman allegedly killed by panhandler was actually killed by husband: police

(According to this)

A Maryland woman who was supposedly killed last year by a panhandler asking for help was actually killed by her husband, police revealed on Sunday.

Baltimore Police Commissioner Michael Harrison said investigators on Dec. 1, 2018 received a call from Keith Smith, Jacquelyn Smith’s husband, reporting that his wife was stabbed to death after she gave money to a panhandler in East Baltimore.

Harrison said that Keith and Valeria Smith were arrested on Sunday near the U.S.-Mexico border in Harlingen, Texas, and were both charged with first-degree murder.

Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh said the father and daughter “took advantage of a situation — a city that is already dealing with its own problems.” The alleged panhandler crime attracted national attention and prompted many people to regard panhandlers warily.
