Courtney’s parents accused of accessing evidence without permission
The arrest warrant states that authorities had charged the couple with unauthorized access to Obumseli’s laptop.
Kim reportedly found the device in the apartment that Courtney previously shared with her partner before she got it back.
After obtaining a warrant to access the Clenneys’ iCloud accounts, investigators found a group discussion discussing ways to gain access to the tech device.
“Shall we send the laptop PIN ideas so we can try them before you see her again?” Kim reportedly wrote in a message sent on September 22, 2022, according to NBC News.
Attorney Cleeney, Frank Prietowhich was also added to the chat, with a series of different suggestions.
“These were possible… “I’ll try everything together to mix some of the capitalization and see if we get lucky. “
“The pin worked”
Eight days after first asking for a pin code, Kim replied, “Hell yeah! That PIN worked!”
Prieto warned Kim not to go through the contents of the laptop and to be aware of what he was clicking.
The conversation then moved to how Prieto would get the device as the pair discussed plans to meet.
On October 6, they decided that Prieto would collect the laptop by driving to Dallas, and Kim replied, “Okay. Sounds good. The sooner the better.”
Courtney’s legal team responds to the arrest by claiming that someone has targeted Kim and Deborah with accusations to defame them and cause them more media scrutiny.
“It seems excessive as the family is now locked in jail awaiting a hearing as well as a possible attempt to manipulate the media headlines and discredit them before the hearing filed Thursday on a gag order in the case,” a lawyer told NBC South Florida.
Courtney’s volatile relationship with Christian
In April 2022, Courtney, a former OnlyFans model, was accused of stabbing Obumseli to death in their Miami apartment, which first brought the Clenney case to the headlines.
Courtney’s defense team has argued that she acted in self-defense during a domestic dispute that later turned fatal.
However, a new video capturing Courtney physically assaulting Christian several times during a trip to Aspen, Colorado, indicated that she had also been abusive in the relationship.

According to TMZ, which obtained the clip, the change took place in February 2022, just two months before Christian’s death.
Courtney reportedly lost her cool when she found out that Christian was “dating” with other women during their vacation.
She retaliates by pushing and hitting him while Christian continues alone, asking her not to touch him.
It is now one of more than a hundred pieces of evidence that have been given to the civil lawyer of the Obsumseli family as part of the investigation.
In August 2022, authorities arrested Courtney and charged him with second-degree murder with a deadly weapon.
