He repeatedly bashed her head with a crowbar covered with a plastic bag, making a loud banging sound. 

Bystanders screamed for him to stop, but he continued the assault. 

He struck Kelly, a mother of two and school aide, three times in the video. 

With her sprawled out lifeless on the curb, he then threw the bag under the bus stop bench, making a clanking sound. 

Aponte then stood up, slowly, tossed a backpack aside and stood beside her, gesturing with both arms as he continued to shout at his apparently unconscious wife. 

Bystanders gasped in horror, yelled, videotaped him and called 911. 

Aponte lingered for a few more seconds before he stepped away.

He fled on a motorcycle then was arrested nearby a few minutes later, police said. 

Aponte later dumped the motorcycle and told a parking attendant that he had killed his wife, according to the New York Post.

The parking attendant reportedly urged Aponte to call the police. 

He eventually called 911 and confessed to killing his wife because she had cheated on him, police said.  

Officers found his wife on the ground, unconscious and with severe head trauma.

Kelly was taken by ambulance to Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center where she went into cardiac arrest due to her injuries and later died. 

Aponte's charges could possibly be upgraded to murder, which would be handled by the Manhattan District Attorney's Office.
