A Florida man killed his wife and posted a picture of her body on Facebook in an apparent confession to the murder.
Derek Medina of Miami, fatally shot his wife Jennifer Alfonso after she was allegedly punching him and he could not take it anymore.
"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," he posted after the photo. "My wife was punching me and I am not going to stand anymore with the abuse so I did what I did I hope u understand me."
Captioning the photo with, "RIP Jennifer Alfonso," the picture showed his wife slumped on the kitchen floor awkwardly placed, and bloody.
When police arrived at the home, they found the body and their 10-year-old daughter unharmed, reports the NY Daily News.
Medina was driven to a police station to turn himself in after he confessed to his father around 11:00 a.m. on Thursday morning.
"He came to my house, and all he said was, 'I need to go to the police. I need to turn myself in,'" the father said to TV station WSVN.
"They were married for three years, and then they got divorced, and they got remarried last year," Medina Sr. said of the couple's two marriages with the second being on in April 2012. "They always had some problems."
Medina ironically is the author of self-help books with each of them having apocalyptic titles according to the NY Daily News.
