A spokesperson for the NYPD on Thursday confirmed to DailyMail.com that the officers in question have been suspended from duty and that the Internal Affairs Bureau was investigating the allegations against them.

Witnesses on the scene allegedly heard an argument and something falling down the stairs, The Post reports.

"It was him", Wells' sister told the Daily News.

Neighbors later called police after hearing the young woman's 2-year-old baby crying.

Tonie Wells, 22, was found dead Wednesday morning in her home on Sterling Place in Crown Heights.

The Brooklyn woman, Tonie Wells, called the police saying she was "scared" because her husband was "acting amusing".

'They seemed like a nice family, ' Ruiz said of the couple, whose Facebook pages are both filled with photos of each other.

While the exact charges filed against Wells have yet to be revealed, and details on an official cause of death is pending, new reports of negligence on behalf of the NYPD has emerged.
