Man murders woman hours after bragging about making 6 figures on Facebook.
Joevan Joseph, 19, was arrested Saturday in connection with the fatal shooting of 33-year-old Makeva Jenkins, just hours after the Florida woman gushed on Facebook about her financial success.
Joseph has been charged with first-degree murder in the June 29 killing of Jenkins. He said he "didn't do it" as he was escorted in handcuffs from Palm Beach County jail to a police cruiser. A judge denied him bond on Sunday.
Jenkins, who founded The Prime Enterprise Group dedicated to helping entrepreneurs and small business owners, wrote in her last Facebook post that she was in "awe of how far" she's come in her life and career. She also boasted how she overcame homelessness to making six figures in two years.
“No matter what the road looked like,” Jenkins wrote. “I followed my heart and stuck with it growing my business.”
“Anyone can do it,” she concluded in her post. “It takes determination and consistency.”
Around 2 a.m., a masked intruder entered Jenkins' upscale Lake Worth home where a fight broke out between the two before Jenkins was fatally shot, authorities said. The suspect then fled the home in one of the family's cars. Jenkins was taken to the hospital where she died from her wounds.
Jenkin's husband, brother and two young kids were in the home at the time, her grandmother told the Post, adding that her oldest child was with her father in Tampa.
Authorities have not released details about a possible motive for her death, but her family believes her social media posts displaying her success may have made her a target.
