NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A prison guard is now facing charges following an alleged affair with a man convicted of killing two NYPD detectives.
Prosecutors said federal correction officer Nancy Gonzalez, 29, was arrested Tuesday morning at her home in Huntington, Long Island. Gonzalez is eight months pregnant with Ronell Wilson’s baby, sources told 1010 WINS’ Juliet Papa.

Gonzalez is accused of getting involved sexually with Wilson during her night shift at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Manhattan. Court documents indicate the tryst began in March of last year and continued until August.
During that time, inmates said they “witnessed hugging and kissing” between Gonzalez and the convict in an empty activity room next to Wilson’s cell, CBS 2’s Sean Hennessey reported.
The inmates also said they saw Wilson “with his pants down” in his cell while Gonzalez was there and that the guard “regularly flirted” with him.
As for how they got together, Gonzalez was recorded as saying she wanted to be loved and “kind of got sucked into his world.”
