(Newser) – Unreal: A South Miami man reportedly posted a photo of his dead wife on Facebook—just after taking her life, CBS Miami reports. Derek Medina, 31, posted the photo of wife Jennifer Alfonso bent over backward in the kitchen of a townhouse with blood on her arm and face. "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," reads a separate post on Medina's page.

"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," the post adds. About 15 hours before, Medina had changed his profile photo to show himself, a young girl, and a woman. A 10-year-old girl was at home during Alfonso's death but wasn't injured. Afterward, Medina went to police and confessed to shooting his wife, saying it all started with a domestic dispute. See more pics, including a blurred version of the death photo, at the Daily News. (Incredibly, Medina has written a self-help book on marriage.)
