- A Connecticut man’s bail has been set at $2.5 million after he was accused of hiring a friend to kill his pregnant girlfriend. Carlton Bryan allegedly wanted Shamari Jenkins dead because she wouldn’t have an abortion:
Calling the crime “egregious,” prosecutor Cathryn J. Krinitsky told the judge that Bryan asked a friend to shoot his girlfriend because “the girlfriend has previously decided to have an abortion but decided not to.”According to the warrant for Bryan’s arrest, he “begged” Hall-Davis to shoot Jenkins, 20. She was shot in the chest April 29 as she sat behind the wheel of her Honda Accord, with Bryan in the front passenger seat, in front of 137 Magnolia St. in the city’s North End.
“Carlton Bryan did not want to have the baby with Shamari Jenkins,” Hall-Davis told police. “Carlton Bryan said Shamari initially agreed to have an abortion but changed her mind and she was now four months pregnant.”
Hall-Davis also told police that Bryan “wanted to stay with… his other girlfriend,” the warrant states.
