A female officer of the New York Police Department has been arrested after she allegedly conspired to have her ex-husband murdered by a hitman, authorities revealed Friday.
Valerie Cincinelli, 34, is said to asked her current partner to find and hire an assassin to carry-out the hit on her former spouse, Isaiah Carvalho Jr.
The mother-of-one was arrested on Friday by the FBI, with the NYPD Internal affairs department assisting with her apprehension.
Court records show Carvalho filed for divorce against Cincinelli last year and a trial date had been set for June.
Valerie Cincinelli (pictured left in 2017 with ex-husband Isiah Carvalho), 34, is believed to have tried to have asked her current partner to hire an assassin to kill her ex-husband. She received a ‘Cop of the month’ award in July 2017 (shown above)
According to the NBC4, Cincinelli joined the police department in 2007 and worked out of the Queens 106th Precinct, in Ozone Park.
However, she was stripped of her badge and gun and placed on modified assignment in 2017 following a number of domestic incidents, an official said.
It’s alleged that Cincinelli became romantically involved with an older local man – described as a ‘sugar daddy’ – who she met while working.
But when she ended the relationship, the man told the Internal Affairs Bureau that she had spent time at his Howard-Beach Home while on-duty, the NY Post reported.
‘They were married, they have a kid together and then they got divorced. There is no way on the planet my daughter would have someone try to murder him. That’s nonsense!’ Cincinelli’s father told the outlet on Friday.
He also added that his daughter had been ‘going out with some wacko who made an allegation against her before that she tried to kill him.’
Refusing to identify the man, he said that he was ‘sure’ the unnamed partner was behind the allegation.
Meanwhile, Carvalho Jr. is said to be left ‘shaken-up’ by the ordeal but doing well ‘with all things considered’.
He declined to speculate whether he believed the allegations against his ex-wife were true or not.

Before her demotion, Cincinelli had been an award-winning officer and was even crowned ‘Cop of the month’ by the Jamaica Rotary in June 2017.
The Oceanside, Long Island resident had recently been working at the Viper Unit, monitoring cameras in public housing prior to her arrest.
A graduate of Longwood University, Cincinelli returned to the school in 2016 to be interviewed about her work in the NYPD’s domestic violence unit.
‘We want kids to like us. That’s the next generation; they’ll be adults in 10 years. I love kids; they’re my soft spot. I feel like I’m making a difference by helping children and their families,’ she said.
‘Unfortunately, when I say hello to kids out walking with their parents, the parent sometimes says, “Don’t talk to them.” Some parents teach their kids to hate the police.’
Cincinelli will appear before a judge on Monday. She was immediately suspended without pay after her arrest.
