A 49-year-old lady in New York died on Friday after being struck unconscious with a crowbar by her jealous husband.
Julio Aponte, 63, beat the skull of his wife Maria Kelly at a Washington Heights bus stop on the morning of June 14. He shouted, “How dare you cheat on me?” and proceeded to beat her until she was motionless on the pavement.
The murder weapon was discovered at the crime site, wrapped in plastic, along with the suspected killer’s bag. Aponte escaped on a motorbike before surrendering to authorities.
Kelly died four days after the horrific act near Fort Washington Avenue and West 163rd Street, in which her angry husband pummeled her to the ground.
According to NBC4, the man was arrested on attempted murder and assault charges. It’s unclear whether the charges will be changed.
