A pregnant woman who was found dead at the bottom of a basement staircase inside her home after neighbors heard the cries of her two-year-old daughter is believed to have been strangled by her husband.
Tonie Wells, 22, who was eight-months pregnant, was found dead shortly before 10am on Wednesday.
Her husband, Barry Wells, 29, is alleged to be the prime suspect in the murder of his wife.
The two appeared to be madly in love. Back in August, the couple -Toni and Barry Wells made headlines after Barry tattooed his wife’s face on his back.
Deputy Chief Michael Kemper, Commanding Officer of Detective Borough Brooklyn North told reporters that they are treating the death as homicide.
Kemper said Wells had bruising on her neck and it appears as if she was either pushed or fell down the flight of stairs leading to the basement’.
The police is actively looking for Barry Wells for questioning. Investigation is still ongoing.
May her gentle soul rest in peace.
