Retired NYPD Officer Does The Unthinkable To His Wife In Front Of Their Children

A couple who had been together since they were teenagers had their lives end in tragedy.

Former NYPD transit officer, Kevin Canty, 44, appeared at Queens Supreme Court Tuesday to plead guilty to first-degree manslaughter in the death of his 40-year-old wife, Jessica Mera Canty.

Canty admitted that he shot his wife seven times in front of their 6- and 9-year-old children in their Queens home on April 19, 2014. The couple also has a 20-year-old daughter.

Canty retired from the NYPD on a disability in 2013. His sentencing is scheduled for January 6--the victim's relatives can then issue their statements. After shooting his wife with a 9mm pistol inside their home in Ozone Park, Canty broke down and confessed. He said, "I'm sorry. I love my wife. She was cheating on me."

Canty's neighbors describe his as an intimidating man who had violent rages--adding that he and his wife fought often. Canty is expected to be sentenced to 25 years in prison as part of his plea deal.
