The 46-year-old man who shot his wife to death in Manhattan’s Financial District and then killed himself knew she was having an affair with another man — and carried their marriage certificate with him during the killing, police sources said.

Xin Yu confronted his wife, Min Ai, 40, at Morris St. and Trinity Place around 9:20 a.m. Monday and shot her in the chest, police said.

The spurned husband then pulled her head up from the city sidewalk where she was lying and shot her a second time before turning the gun on himself, the sources said.
