A retired New York cop confessed to authorities that he shot his wife to death because he was stressed over holiday expenses and money woes.
Clarence Cash, 49, turned himself into police after he allegedly shot his wife 10 times. The former cop told NYPD that his wife, Tracey Young, threatened to leave him after a fight over money, putting him over the edge.
“I just shot my wife,” muscle-bound Clarence Cash, 49, calmly told officers hours after allegedly pumping 10 bullets into his pretty wife, Tracey Young, 42 — a top tax investigator who specialized in busting tobacco smugglers — in their posh Queens condo.
Cash was charged with first-degree murder. He was remanded without bail, and his lawyer asked that he be placed in protective custody at Rikers.
