What manner of man - or monster - is this?

George Tiaffay, West Point (Class of '94), was in a bitter divorce battle with Shauna, his estranged wife.

The Las Vegas fire-fighter needed an alibi to make himself look good when he "discovered" his slain wife's body in her Summerlin apartment, not far from the gambling mecca's main strip.

Mrs. Tiaffay, a blonde and beautiful cocktail waitress, had had her fill of her controlling hubby's domineering ways, cops say, and wanted out of the marriage.

USED LITTLE DAUGHTER TO COVER HIS TRACKS

The couple had an eight year-old daughter, and that's who "daddy" took with him when he feigned "surprise," finding Shauna's dead body sprawled on her back on the living room floor.

The 45 year-old woman had a gash on her head so deep, at first the paramedics who responded to the scene Sept. 29, 2012, thought she'd been shot with a handgun. Police knew better. They quickly found the murder weapon, a hammer, used with such force it broke off at the handle.

THE PLOT COMES UNDONE WITH A PHONE CALL

Tiaffay made a show of "shock," comforted his unsuspecting daughter, and called 911.

At first it looked like a typical bungled robbery. Happens all the time in Vegas. Women casino workers living alone are always prey for punks. But a couple weeks later, a telephone tipster told cops a homeless man had been bragging to his buddies about killing a woman fitting the description of the slain cocktail waitress.

Noel Stevens, 37, claimed he knew nothing when detectives grilled him. But after the dead woman's undergarments and a bloody item of clothing were found in his tent, he started to spill his guts.

When ex-CPT Tiaffay was told he was a "prime suspect" in the case, he jumped into his pickup truck and barreled into a retainer wall by the highway. Unfortunately, he messed that up. He came out of the crash with only a few cuts and bruises.

SOLID CASE AGAINST EX-ARMY OFFICER

MilitaryCorruption.com has been told the case against Tiaffay is "rock solid." Not only has Stevens pled guilty to killing the victim, he told police the ex-Army officer paid him $600 for the job and offered to testify against the bull-necked hubby when the case goes to trial. Phone records connect Tiaffay and Stevens, plus the duo were caught on surveillance cameras buying the hammer at a local store just before the murder.

The 41 year-old, a fire-fighter since 2002 - we weren't able to find out much about what happened in his military career after graduation from USMA - claims he's innocent.

The man who police say orchestrated the killing and provided Stevens with a copy of the apartment key so he could lay in wait for Shauna, is now being held without bail in the Clark County Detention Center in Las Vegas.

Tiaffay's come a long ways since he walked the halls of West Point.
