Man Who Allegedly Killed His Wife Posted Pictures Of Her Dead Body On Facebook

A man who killed his wife and posted a photo of her corpse on Facebook shot her in self-defense because he lived in fear of her drug abuse, violent tendencies, and even Satan worship, the man’s attorney said Monday.

Defense attorney Saam Zangeneh said Monday that he will seek to introduce evidence that 27-year-old Jennifer Alfonso was an avid user of synthetic drugs such as ecstasy, that she battered her husband, and that she was deeply involved in the occult and Satan worship.

Jury selection begins Tuesday for Derek Medina, 33, who faces life in prison if convicted of the August 2013 slaying at the couple’s South Miami home. Medina has been jailed since his arrest.

The case gained national attention because Medina posted the photo of Alfonso’s body on Facebook, admitting in the post that he killed her and would likely go to prison. In later interviews with police, however, he said it was self-defense.
