Ex-NYPD Cop Lands in Jail for 27 years after Killing New Girlfriend of Former Romantic Partner: Prosecutors Reveal

Almost three years have passed since an off-duty NYPD officer allegedly made disturbing remarks during a tragic incident in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn. Yvonne Wu has now pleaded guilty to the crimes, which could result in a lengthy prison sentence of nearly thirty years.

A plea deal has been reached in the case of a woman from Staten Island who used her off-duty NYPD pistol to commit a violent crime. The individual has pleaded guilty to first-degree manslaughter and attempted second-degree murder.

As a result, she will face a combined sentence of up to 27 years in prison. The incident occurred on October 13, 2021, when the woman tragically took the life of her ex’s new girlfriend and also injured her ex, who survived the attack.

According to reports from the local news, Wu calmly and collectedly confessed to being the perpetrator in what has been referred to as a love triangle shooting.

Wu was arrested in broad daylight outside her ex’s residence on 19th Avenue, where Liang and Li were shot in the chest and torso, according to the NYPD.

According to a friend of Li’s who spoke with the New York Daily News, Wu, who had been an NYPD officer for five and a half years at the time of the shooting, was described as a “psychopath” and a “possessive” stalker. According to a friend, the defendant, who had recently experienced a breakup, responded by going to Li’s house and waiting in the bedroom for the victims to return.

The attorney general’s office has recently disclosed that Wu has officially confessed to using her police-issued firearm to commit one murder and attempting to commit another. These admissions are expected to result in a 27-year prison sentence for Wu, with the sentencing scheduled for Aug. 28 as reported by Law&Crime.

“As part of the plea, the parties have recommended a prison sentence of 22 years on the Manslaughter charge and five years on the Attempted Murder charge, to run consecutively, for a total of 27 years in prison, as well as five years of post-release supervision, a waiver of Wu’s right to appeal, and an order of protection for Ms. Li,” James’ office said in a press release.
