  • Tonie Wells 22 was found dead in her Crown Heights Brooklyn home on Dec. 27 2017

The New York Post reported officers were dispatched to check on the young mother who was "scared" of her husband because he was "acting amusing".

The husband of a 22-year-old woman found dead on the basement steps of her home in Brooklyn after a neighbor responded to the cries of a 3-year-old girl is in custody and charges against him are pending, police said Thursday.

Amid that murky and complicated relationship is the fact that many women who report violence feel invalidated by the police.

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. She was pronounced dead at the scene, according to police. Wells' daughter was not hurt, but it's unclear how long Wells' body was inside the house with the child. Bruises were found on her neck, and her husband, Barry Wells, was arrested.

Wang said the meeting aims to set up a communication platform for Afghanistan and Pakistan, and boost trilateral cooperation. However, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi will be hosting the talks.

Law enforcement sources told PIX11 News that Wells was apparently strangled and thrown down the stairs.

Neighbors told the newspaper they were shocked by the violent tragedy.

"An initial determination deemed this person's death to be suspicious and it is now being investigated", Deputy Chief Michael Kempfer said. The Medical Examiner's Office will make a final determination as to the cause of death. Police officials are also looking into whether the 911 dispatcher gave the officers complete information about the incident.

The man who was arrested after his wife was found strangled to death at the bottom of a staircase inside their Brooklyn home was previously arrested for strangling her until she was unconscious several months ago, The Post has learned. "The entire incident, including any potential communication and response issues, are being reviewed by the department", a police spokesman said.
