  • Tonie and Barry Wells

Less than two hours later, different officers responded to the same home and found Wells dead at the base of a stairwell, authorities said.

Sources say cops are "actively looking for" Wells' 29-year-old husband, Barry Wells, for questioning.

'Witnesses heard an argument and something falling down the stairs, ' a high-ranking police source told the newspaper, New York Post. She was pronounced dead at the scene, according to police. Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce said the suspect was taken into custody with the help of the New Rochelle Police Department on Wednesday night.

The officers - identified by a law enforcement source as Wing Hong Lau and Wael Jaber, both 11-year veterans - were called to the home of 22-year-old Tonie Wells after a 911 call was made Wednesday morning, police said. It is not clear what day or time Tonie's sister called 911 or what, if anything, the officers observed when they drove to the home. The paper says the officers never got out of their auto.

Neighbors alerted police after they heard crying and realized they had not seen Wells recently.

"Wells" neighbor, Michelle Ruiz, 22, who last saw Wells three weeks ago, said Wells was pregnant.

The on-and-off couple married in the spring but the nature of their current relationship was unclear NBC reported. The medical examiner will determine Wells' cause of death.

"An initial determination deemed this person's death to be suspicious and it is now being investigated", said deputy chief Michael Kempfer, according to CBS News.

'Preliminarily, the deceased female has bruising on her neck and it appears as if she was either pushed or fell down the flight of stairs leading to the basement, ' Kemper said.

But now the NYPD's Internal Affairs Bureau is probing whether the officers even went inside the apartment at all.

According to the Post, police have previously responded to a domestic incident at the home.
