A husband in Miami posted a chilling murder confession on his Facebook page Thursday, which was accompanied by a graphic and disturbing photo of his dead wife.
Derek Medina, 31, posted the photo on the social networking site at around noon on Thursday, along with the message "Rip Jennifer Alonso."
The photo, which TheBlaze has chosen not to publish, shows a woman, identified in the photo as Jennifer Alfonso, bent over backwards at the knees. Her left arm is covered in blood and blood also seems to be on her face.
Medina's confession came minutes before the photo was posted. It read:
“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.”
South Miami police confirmed Medina's identity to CBS Miami. Medina reportedly turned himself in on Thursday morning.
Authorities also said there was a 10-year-old girl at the home, but she was unharmed. Police found the body of Jennifer Alonso when they arrived at the residence.
"According to marriage records, Medina and Alfonso had been married since April 2012," CBS Miami reports.
