"Bradley Jenkins, 30, was charged with third-degree domestic assault Monday in connection with the death of Allissa Martin, 27. Jenkins was ordered held in lieu of $100,000 cash bail, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Police responding to a 911 call reporting a fall found Martin's body outside the garage near Busch Stadium shortly before 2 a.m. Sunday. Court documents cited by the Post-Dispatch stated that Jenkins was "agitated and appeared to be intoxicated" when officers found him straddling Martin's body.

According to the documents, Jenkins told investigators that he and Martin -- also an Illinois corrections officer -- had attended Saturday's baseball game between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Chicago Cubs with some co-workers. Jenkins said that the couple had argued during the game, but denied that they had a physical confrontation.

Authorities say police found Martin's cellphone on the seventh floor of the garage with the video camera recording. When officers reviewed footage shot on the phone, they saw Martin "pointing the camera toward herself," according to St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department Detective Mark West. "She then turned the camera toward this defendant and he was shown on camera. They were arguing."

Court documents say Martin could be heard on the recording yelling at Jenkins to stop punching her in the face before dropping the phone. A short time later, investigators say, a scream can be heard on the recording followed by the sound of the woman hitting the ground.

Jenkins told police that he and Martin were married on May 22 in Las Vegas, prosecutors say."

Police say they are investigating to determine whether Jenkins should face additional charges.
The seriously damning video evidence from her phone that he was hitting/punching her, then shortly after she dropped her phone during what he describes as a mere "argument", her screams as she "fell" and her hitting the ground can be heard on the still running video from her phone, and she *died* from the fall - yet he still claimed no physical confrontation occurred.
It's rather astonishing that they haven't already pressed additional charges, such as manslaughter.
Hard not to wonder if his family has "special connections, or are very wealthy, because just about anyone else would have already had the book thrown at them by prosecutors.

One of these days, Alice. Bang! Zoom! To the pavement!

I'm assuming the domestic assault charge is just the cause for arrest. Since bond was set, he's had his preliminary hearing with the formal charge of domestic violence.. but the prosecution can add charges afterward based on recovered evidence. Casenet shows the charges being filed just yesterday (the 3rd), so the prosecutor may not have had time to review things.
Or at least, I hope that's what is going on.

So I’m guessing he was a cubs fan and she was a cards fan? Volatile as a grease fire and water anyway. And the Cubs did lose 7-4 which is pretty decisive in baseball. Just a theory.
