Miami Man Kills Wife, Posts Photos and Confession on Facebook

Yep -- what the headline says.

Earlier today, Derek Medina, of South Miami, wrote on his Facebook page, "Im going to prison or death sentence for killing my wife love you guys miss you guys takecare 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 u understand me "

He then posted a picture of a woman bent backwards at the knees, her head in a corner by an oven, with blood on her body. He wrote "Rip Jennifer Alfonso."

As of 3:30 p.m., the Facebook page was still active. New Times has opted not to post the image, but surely Medina's page will be going viral momentarily.

On his Facebook page, Medina listed his occupation as actor on the show Burn Notice, but the Internet Movie Database has no record of him appearing on the show. Judging by this You Tube video, he may have once appeared on the show as an extra. he also apparently had a corporation called Florida Ballerz. You Tube video shows the "ceo" getting a haircut.

Alfonso's Facebook page says she worked at Denny's.

Police have said Medina showed up at South Miami police station and confessed. They found the body, and a 10-year -old girl at the home. The girl was unharmed.

Our sister paper, Miami New Times, will be updating with details.
