Kevin Canty (pictured above), a retired New York City police officer, stands accused of fatally shooting his wife, Jessica Mera (pictured below), 40, ten times in front of their two children on Saturday morning after reportedly accusing her of sleeping with another police officer.

According to the New York Daily News, Canty, who has confessed to the crime and is facing charges of second-degree murder and criminal use of a firearm, is also reportedly sorry for the slaying, claiming jealousy drove him to it.

The 43-year-old man, who admits to still loving his wife, allegedly told a detective who drove him to a nearby precinct for questioning that he used a 9-mm pis
tol to take Mera’s life.
