The New York Post reported officers were dispatched to check on the young mother who was "scared" of her husband because he was "acting amusing".

Two New York City Police officers have been suspended on suspicion of failing to perform a welfare check on a 22-year-old pregnant woman who was later found dead in her Brooklyn home - and now her husband has been arrested in her death.

Internal Affairs Bureau has now launched an investigation into the officers who were initially dispatched, as friends and family wonder whether police have blood on their hands....

Tonie Wells had bruising to the neck and head, and it appears she may have been shoved down the stairs of her home near Sterling Place and Albany Avenue, police told reporters during a press conference.

Hours later, husband Barry Wells was caught by police.

Two police officers were suspended yesterday after allegedly ignoring a 911 call to check on Tonie Wells, sources told the New York Post.

But they never got out of their auto.

The man who was arrested after his wife was found strangled to death at the bottom of a staircase inside their Brooklyn home was previously arrested for strangling her until she was unconscious several months ago, The Post has learned.

"I would see them together". The caller told police they heard a woman yell "help me, he's going to kill me", 1010 WINS reported.

Wells' Facebook page shows she married her on-and-off boyfriend in the spring but the nature of their current relationship was unclear.

Police were questioning Wells' husband Barry in connection with her death, but an arrest had not been made.

"An initial determination deemed this person's death to be suspicious and it is now being investigated", said deputy chief Michael Kempfer, according to CBS News.

This latest incident is the second time officers responded to a domestic incident at the Wells' house.
