Janoris Jenkins’ Brother Charged with Death of Man Found in His House

William Jenkins, the older brother of Giants baller Janoris Jenkins, was charged with aggravated manslaughter in the death of music producer Roosevelt Rene, 25. Rene, who was a family friend of Jenkins, was found in Janoris’ New Jersey home on Tuesday (June 26), and it was revealed that the football player was in Florida at the time.

NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo revealed that the case is being investigated as a possible strangulation/suffocation incident. No further details about the case have been revealed.

Jenkins was being held in the Ontario County Jail in Canandaigua, NY, for violating the conditions of his parole, state Department of Corrections and Community Supervision spokesman Thomas Mailey said.

He is expected to be extradited to New Jersey, officials said.

Jenkins was arrested upstate on an outstanding warrant around 1:40 a.m. Tuesday — about nine hours before Rene’s body was discovered at his NFL player brother’s luxury home in Fair Lawn, according to jail records obtained by TMZ Sports.

The body of Rene, a Jenkins family friend, was found in the basement of the 29-year-old athlete’s six-bedroom home while Jenkins was in Florida.

Rene, who produced music under the name Trypps Beatz, had been staying at Jenkins’ home. Jenkins — whose football nickname is “Jackrabbit" and who raps under the name “Rabbit" — reportedly made music with Rene.
