BENSONHURST (PIX11) — The wife of slain New York Police Detective Wenjian Liu tearfully  gave a heartfelt eulogy at his funeral in Brooklyn.

"To me, he's my soul mate -- my best friend," said Pei Xia Chen, "an incredible husband."

The two had been married for about two months when Liu was shot on Dec. 20.

"We spoke about work often and how much respect he had for the law, how he applied the law ... with courtesy, with respect and with the highest professionalism."

Although Liu worked a lot, he always made time for her, "his number one fan," she said. "He was always there when anyone needed something."

"You," she said, "were an amazing man."
