Ex-Jail Deputy Sentenced To 20 Years In Prison For Fatally Stabbing Wife And Attempting To Decapitate Her


Wilford Jenkins III, 49, is an ex-correctional guard and jail deputy in Forest Park, Ohio. He has been given 20 years in prison for fatally stabbing his wife.

On Thursday, Jenkins took a plea after first being charged with murder. He was punished for involuntary manslaughter, felonious assault, and tampering with evidence.

In October 2021, Jenkins waited for his spouse, Huletta Jenkins, 47, to come back home on Bessinger Drive. He then stabbed her several times, resulting in her death. She suffered wounds to her chest, arms, neck, and abdomen.

Documents note that the wife died from her throat being cut. She had pieces of bone missing from spinal cord with her husband stating that he attempted to decapitate her.

Wilford then attempted to kill himself but was unsuccessful. Before he killed his wife, he tried turned the power off to their Ring doorbell.

“I am so sorry, and I wish I could take it all back. I wish I could have her back in everybody’s lives,” Wilford said.

“The only remorse you have is that you got caught. Why didn’t you just leave and let her live?” Huletta’s mother questioned during the victim impact statement.

Wilford won’t be able to qualify for an early  release from prison.
