Perkins, who was Kasandra Perkins’ first cousin, is the sister of Whitney Golden Charles, whose husband is Chiefs All-Pro running back Jamaal Charles.
“Out of these bad circumstances, this was the best result for Zoey,” said Mark Roberts, Perkins’ attorney. “Both sides love Zoey; both sides were operating with her best interest in mind. The court had a difficult decision to make, but we think it was the right decision.”
Shepherd’s attorneys did not immediately return calls seeking comment.
Other than some trips to New York to spend time with Shepherd, Zoey has mostly stayed with Perkins in Texas since the shooting. The time the girl spent bonding with Perkins played a role in Wheeler’s decision, he wrote, as did the police calls to Shepherd’s home.
Jamaal is entering his sixth season with the Chiefs and he looked great during the 2013 OTA and minicamp practices. If Chiefs fans get their wish, they’ll see more games from Jamaal ending like his career-best performance against the Denver Broncos on January 3, 2010, when he rushed for 259 yards and two TDs.
So, while the debate over where Jamaal Charles (and his other four Chiefs teammates) belongs on the Top 100 Players of 2013 continues, as the saying goes, ‘numbers never lie’; here’s a list of Jamaal’s rushing TDs, as well as a look at his career-high records earned during his five-year career.
2012 Regular Season
9/23 – at New Orleans – 91-yard TD
9/30 – vs San Diego – 37-yard TD
11/12 – at Pittsburgh – 12-yard TD
12/9 – at Cleveland – 80-yard TD
12/23 – vs Indianapolis – 86-yard TD
The custody battle surrounding the daughter of former Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher and Kassandra Perkins has finally come to a conclusion. Zoey Belcher lost both of her parents when her father killed her mother and then went to the team facility before turning the gun on himself, but she will now be cared for by the cousin of her mother, Sophie Perkins.
According to reports, custody came down to Perkins and Cheryl Shepherd, the mother of Zoey’s late father. Jackson County Probate Commissioner Daniel Wheeler stated that both women would be suitable care takers, but Sophie ultimately gained full custody.
