Jeannine Shante Skinner, 35, was an assistant professor of gerontology and psychology in the Department of Psychological Science. But on Friday afternoon, police say she was murdered - they claim by her JEALOUS boyfriend.
Jeannine’s body was found in her apartment, and police believe the incident is possibly domestic related. Officers are saying that Jeannine's boyfriend, 45-year-old Donny Lewis Franklin is the prime suspect and a murder warrant has been issued for his arrest.
Donny was last seen driving a burgundy Jeep with the license plate number 0512KN, police said. He is considered armed and dangerous and may be suicidal, police said.
Donny has a history of violence against women. He pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor count of assault on a female, court records show, while a charge of violating a domestic violence protective order was dismissed at that time.
