Bronx man arraigned in wife's murder

A 31-year-old Bronx man remains behind bars Wednesday morning after he was arraigned in connection with his wife's murder.



Amauri Perdomo faces several charges, including second-degree murder and criminal possession of a weapon.



Court papers identify him as the gunman who shot his wife, Jennifer Ortiz, Sunday morning on Morris Avenue. He's also accused of shooting at another man trying to kill him. They also show Perdomo was in a car with four other people on Monday when he fired a gun.



No one was injured in that shooting, but he's facing charges for that incident as well. His next court date is Friday.
