Hispanic Who Murdered His Ex-Wife Sentenced to a Minimum of 20 Years Behind Bars in Brooklyn – NBC New York

A Brooklyn man who fatally shot his ex-wife at a family gathering in 2017 was sentenced Tuesday to a minimum of 20 years behind bars.

Gabino Genao, 34, pleaded guilty last year to the cold-blooded murder of Iveliss Alvarado, from whom he was separated at the time of the murder.

Genao pleaded guilty in November to charges of murder, assault, reckless endangerment and criminal possession of a weapon.

Alvarado, 30, had refused to reconcile, angering Genao, authorities said.

The man tracked the mother of two children to a home on W. 36th St. in Sea Gate, Brooklyn, on May 26, 2017, around 11 p.m. Alvarado was attending a family reunion and was with relatives when Genao began to beat her up.

A female cousin tried to stop the beating, but Genao hit her too.

Genao then opened fire, hitting Alvarado with at least two bullets to the face. The man fled the scene and his arrest involved a week of police pursuit. But even his parents urged him to turn himself in to the police.

Genao was arrested at a hotel in Newark on June 2, 2017. When he was caught, the man denied that he was the killer, or even the man they believed him to be.

“My name is James. I’m homeless,” he allegedly told arresting officers.

The sentence of 20 years to life was imposed by Brooklyn Judge Donald Leo.

“Today’s sentencing holds this defendant accountable for the wanton and cruel murder of a young mother of two at a family gathering, and my condolences to the family of Iveliss Alvarado for their tremendous loss,” the Brooklyn District Attorney said. Eric Gonzalez.
