Wife spotted for first time since her cop husband killed her lover then himself in a murder-suicide

The wife of the NYPD police officer who killed her lover before killing himself was spotted outside their upstate home Tuesday, May 10.

Officer Sean Armstead suspected his wife Alexandra Vanderheyden, 35, of cheating on him, so he tracked her and her 20-year-old boyfriend Edward Wilkins to a hotel Sunday, May 8, and fatally shot the lover. The off-duty cop then turned the gun on himself.

Alexandra was seen on Tuesday for the first time since the killing.

Armstead, a veteran Bronx police officer, had called in sick from his midnight shift and then trailed his wife and her alleged lover to a La Quinta Inn in upstate Wallkill.
