A city sanitation worker’s estranged wife found him dead in his Bronx home Tuesday, with knife wounds on his hands and legs, and cop sources said the man’s girlfriend killed him.

Aaron Rodriguez’s wife discovered his body at his home on Quincy Avenue in Throgs Neck at about 7:45 a.m. Tuesday, police sources said.

Rodriguez, 39, had not been seen since Sunday, and Sanitation Department officials reached out to the wife when he did not show up for work Monday, police sources said.

Cops found a bloodied, broken knife near his body, sources said.

Cops arrested alleged gal pal Naomi Olmeda, 31, on Tuesday night and charged her with murder, manslaughter, criminal mischief and weapon possession.

It is not clear which wound killed him, and police said an autopsy will reveal his cause of death.
