A New York City police officer was arrested Friday in connection with a plot to hire a hitman to kill her ex-husband and her boyfriend's teen daughter, prosecutors said.
Valerie Cincinelli, 34, of Long Island, was immediately suspended without pay after being charged with conspiracy to commit murder. She was taken into custody after the FBI planned an elaborate ruse where an agent posed as a hitman faked the hit on her former spouse, Isaiah Carvalho Jr.
The murders were supposed to be carried out last weekend, KABC-TV reported.
“The evidence in this case is overwhelming,’’ said Brooklyn U.S. Attorney Richard Donoghue, according to court documents.
The FBI and the NYPD’s Internal Affairs division are involved in the investigation into the alleged murder-for-hire.
