NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Friday was arraignment day for an ex-New York City police officer accused of trying to hire a hitman to kill her estranged husband and her current boyfriend's teenage daughter.


An emotional Valerie Cincinelli was in federal court where she pleaded not guilty to two counts of murder for hire, wiping away tears through the brief proceeding.

"She misses her children by all accounts, she is a wonderful mother who has gone through absolute hell," her attorney said.

The 34-year-old allegedly tried to have her husband killed amid a divorce, along with a hit on her boyfriend's 15-year-old daughter.
