See No Evil is investigating the brutal murder of Rhonda Oakley at their home in Danville, Kentucky, by her stepdaughter Jenna Oakley and teenage boyfriend Kenneth Nye.
On September 1, 2016, David Oakley (13) returned home from school to find his mother Rhonda Oakley, 52, had been murdered. Rhonda’s throat was cut with a kitchen knife.
Police later learned that David’s 15-year-old stepsister, Jenna Oakley, was missing, as was Rhonda’s car. After making sure Jenna wasn’t kidnapped, police quickly realized she was on the run with her older boyfriend, Kenneth Nye, 20.
Three days later, Jenna and Nye were eventually arrested in New Mexico and charged with theft and murder. Nye managed to escape justice by hanging himself in his cell; he committed suicide, but later died in hospital from his injuries.
According to Jenna’s father and Rhonda’s husband, Philip Oakley, his daughter’s behavior has raised warning signs that they are even considering sending her to boarding school.

Jenna and Nye had been in a relationship for about three or four years, and her parents wanted to stop it. However, the young couple appears to have decided to turn to murder rather than abandon their affair.
Jenna Oakley was found guilty in the Rhonda Oakley murder.
In January 2019, Jenna Oakley agreed to plead guilty to manslaughter and theft. There is controversy over whether she should be convicted as a minor or an adult. Ultimately, she was sentenced to 15 years in prison as an adult. The judge called the murder “particularly brutal”.
It was “too short” for her dad Philip, but he was glad Jenna was sent to prison. He told the outlet: “I think she and Kenny are monsters. I just don’t understand how someone could do that to someone who cares about them, that’s doing their best to love them.”
