The suspect has a long list of priors. He has been arrested 14 times since 2005 on charges ranging from assault to robbery, harassment, strangulation and aggravated harassment, officials said.
He served  two years in prison after being convicted of assault in 2007. Paroled in December 2009, he was back in prison in 2016 after violating his parole in February. He was released again on June 7.
On Nov. 5, cops arrested him in Manhattan for violating an order of protection filed against him by his 29-year-old former girlfriend.
To rub it in, moments after shooting his wife in the head on a Coney Island sidewalk, Gabino Genao reportedly  gloated about it to his mother-in-law, according to the victim’s cousin.
“Where is my daughter?” cried Olga Alvarado.
Genao responded: “I killed her,” said Alvarado-Genao’s cousin, Richard Nunez.
Another family member who was at the family gather when the Genao shot his ex, said she witnessed suspect fire both bullets into her relative from behind.
“They were standing here talking, arguing. He reached out with both arms to hug her or grab her and she pulled away,” said the female cousin through tears.
“He pulled out a pistol, shot her as she walked away. When she hit the ground he walked up to her … and shot her again as she laid on the ground. Then he walked back to our house, and I ran inside.”
