A Florida man has been arrested in connection to his wife's murder after posting a graphic photo on his Facebook page showing a blood-spattered woman slumped on the floor.
In a message that appeared on his personal Facebook account Thursday morning, 31-year-old Derek Medina, of Miami, allegedly admitted to the murder of his wife, 26-year-old Jennifer Alfonso.
'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,' he wrote. '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.'
Medina's post and shocking photo of his murdered wife remained on Facebook for five hours before his profile was taken down just before 5pm Thursday.
Officers who were dispatched to the couple's home at 5555 SW 67th Avenue discovered Jennifer Alfonso' body.
A 10-year-old girl was led out of the residence wrapped in a red blanket. The child is believed to have been present during the shooting, but was not harmed.
The woman in the picture is bent over backwards at the knees wearing black leotards with her head in the corner of what appears to be a kitchen.
The unsettling post left several of Medina's friends puzzled, asking him what happened.

On his Facebook page, Medina listed his occupation as actor on the USA Network show Burn Notice, but it appears that the 31-year-old was at one point an extra in the series, the Broward-Palm Beach New Times found.
Medina's Facebook profile was taken down just before 5pm Thursday.
In an interview with the local station WSVN, Medina's father, Derek Medina Sr., said that his son came to him at around 11am Thursday and admitted to shooting his wife.
Miami New Times reported that Medina has published a number of self-help e-books, among them one titled: 'How I Saved Someone's Life and Marriage and Family Problems Thru Communication.'
His works, mostly bearing odd and lengthy titles, are available through the site e-junkie priced between $999 and $11.99. At least one is out in paperback selling for $19.99.
