MAN SHOOTS WIFE, POSTS PIC ONLINE – Saturday August 10 2013

– A man is being held by Florida police after apparently gunning down his wife and posting a gruesome picture of her dead body on Facebook, authorities say.
Derek Medina, 31, was being questioned by detectives in Miami after turning himself in yesterday following the shooting death of his wife, Jennifer Alfonso, 26.
Before he was taken into custody, Medina had apparently posted pictures showing his slain wife’s blood-soaked body on Facebook under the caption “RIP Jennifer Alfonso”.
In a status update posted shortly before the photo was uploaded, Medina wrote about the incident.
He said: “I’m going to prison or death sentence for killing my wife love you guys miss you guys take care Facebook people you will see me in the news.
“My wife was punching me and I am not going to stand anymore with the abuse so I did what I did I hope you understand me.”
Police said Medina drove himself to South Miami Police Department after the shooting.
“Officers then responded to the listed location where they found the victim deceased from apparent gunshot wounds, as well as the victim’s daughter, 10, who was unharmed,” a statement said. “The motive is unknown at this time.”
Medina’s Facebook page showing the picture of his dead wife was up for several hours before being taken down later on Thursday.
Local media reports quoted Medina’s father, Derek Medina Sr, saying that his son had killed his wife after a violent domestic dispute. “He just said that his wife picked up a knife on him, and they had a big fight, and he shot her,” Mr Medina Sr said – Herald Sun
