Man fatally stabs his police wife for allegedly cheating with a colleague.
A husband accused of brazenly murdering his wife, an NYPD officer, has blamed another officer for his wife’s death.
Officer Arianna Reyes-Gomez, 31, was repeatedly stabbed in her home on Grand Concourse early Monday, June 13.
Argenis de Jesus Baez Pizano is accused of stabbing her multiple times.
Surveillance video shows Pizano, 34, confronting Reyes-Gomez in her doorway after an argument between the couple, and struggling with her as he pushes his way inside, according to Assistant District Attorney David Birnbaum.
He stabbed her eight times in the breasts, leg, chest, and back, and video shows him fleeing her house with a knife two minutes later, according to Birnbaum.
According to Birnbaum, he then confessed to an aunt, who had her son call 911.
The accused man attempted to blame his wife’s fellow patrol officer, whom he claims she was having an affair with, in a bizarre statement to detectives on Tuesday.

He claims the officer instructed him to carry out the heinous crime.
“If you can find [the officer], he’s the one who told me to do this.” At Pizano’s arraignment in Bronx Criminal Court Tuesday afternoon, Assistant District Attorney David Birnbaum said Pizano told investigators, “He’s the one who told me to kill her.”
“I can’t believe I did that,” he said in another statement to cops.
“And it was all caught on camera,” the prosecutor added.
John Russo, Pizano’s defence lawyer, told reporters that he was enraged by an alleged extramarital affair.
Pizano’s brother, who spoke in Spanish through a translator but did not give his name, claimed the victim was having an affair outside the courtroom.
He claimed that she had a relationship with her patrol partner. “That was a part of the set-up.” The officer had previously been in the apartment with her.”
John Russo, Pizano’s defence attorney, said he’d look into the claim.
He charged, without elaborating, that “there was some rumour she was having an affair with her partner.” “We’re going to find out what’s going on.”

One of the officers present said, “She was a wonderful person.” “There are a lot of people who are suffering.” This shouldn’t have happened in the first place.”
Pizano is accused of murder, manslaughter, and possessing weapons.
Pizano and Reyes-Gomez have a 4-year-old son together, according to her family, who spoke to the Daily News on Monday. According to the slain officer’s sister, the couple was still married but had been separated for eight months.
