Former NYPD officer faces judge over wife's murder

A former NYPD officer is due in court this afternoon, on charges that he strangled his wife and dumped her body in Yorktown.

Ed Coello is facing murder charges for allegedly killing his wife Tina Adovasio, who worked as a maternity nurse at Sound Shore Medical Center in New Rochelle. He was arrested last week, hours after her funeral in Mahopac.

Coello is now imprisoned separately from other prisoners at Riker's Island, after officers said inmates were verbally abusing him.
