Authorities nabbed the Sheepshead Bay man suspected of killing his estranged wife in Coney Island after a week long manhunt that ended in Delaware, said police.

U.S. Marshals arrested Gabino Genao for allegedly shooting his wife on W. 36th Street near the Boardwalk on May 26.

Police discovered Ivelisse Alvarado-Genao shot in the face at 11:15 pm near Seagate. Emergency responders pronounced the 30-year-old victim dead on the scene, officials said.

Investigators sought Alvarado-Genao’s husband for questioning after the shooting. But the he skipped town, and it wasn’t until a week later that U.S. Marshals arrested the fugitive on June 2, a police spokesman said.

Genao has a checkered past, with 15 arrests since 2005 on charges including assault, robbery, and aggravated harassment, according to police.

He did a two year stint in prison after an assault conviction in 2007 and served another five months on a parole violation last year.

The 30-year-old was last arrested in November on charges that he violated an order of protection against an ex-girlfriend, police said.

Genao was charged with murder and criminal possession of a weapon.
