The estranged husband of a New York City police officer – accused of trying to have him killed – says federal authorities told him to fake his own death after learning of the cop’s plot.

Isaiah Carvalho Jr. spoke about the ordeal in an interview on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”

As part of a sting operation, Carvalho said authorities had him sit in his car and appear to have been attacked in his driver’s seat. Agents then put glass on the floor and all over Officer Valerie Cincinelli’s ex-husband as he played dead.
