Suspect charged with murder in shooting death of Jacqueline Avant – .


The man the cops say is responsible for the shooting deaths of Jacqueline Before, the wife of Clarence Before, was charged with murder… TMZ found out.

The LA County District Attorney’s Office announced the charges of murder, attempted murder and felony with a firearm as well as two counts of residential burglary with one person present against Aariel mayor Monday, less than a week after Avant’s death.

George Gascón, the prosecutor said, “Ms. Avant was a valued member of our community. His generosity and goodwill touched so many lives.

TMZ revealed the story, Maynor allegedly broke into the family home around 2:30 a.m. on December 1. He then shot and killed Jackie and opened fire on a security guard. Clarence and the guard were not injured.

As we reported, Maynor was arrested on the night of the murder when he was found in a backyard 6 miles from the Avant house committing another felony. Somehow, Maynor shot himself in the foot with the same weapon he is believed to have used to kill Avant.

Maynor’s motive is currently unknown, but it is possible that the Forwards were the victims of a random attack at their home in Trousdale Estates.

Clarence, known as the “Godfather of Black Music,” is a music legend, with a career and influence spanning decades. He and Jacqueline were regulars at public outings, and after his death tributes poured into the world of entertainment and politics.

A tribute came from the old President Clinton, who said: “Jackie Avant was a wonderful woman, a great partner to Clarence and mother to Alex and Nicole, an active citizen and dear friend to Hillary and I for 30 years. She inspired admiration, respect and affection in all who knew her. We are heartbroken. She will be deeply missed.
