Miami-Dade, FL – On Friday, Miami-Dade County Circuit Court Judge Yvonne Colodny sentenced Derek Medina, 33, to life in prison without parole. Medina was convicted for 2nd-degree murder for the homicide of Jennifer Alfonso, 26, on August 2013.
Medina fatally shot Alfonso multiple times in the kitchen and then posted her photo on Facebook (FB) after she was dead. He also posted a confession that he killed her after she punched him.
Medina posted, “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 on the news…My 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.”
On Alfonso’s dead body photo, Medina added, “RIP, Jennifer Alfonso.”
The coroner’s reported showed that Alfonso was kneeling and attempting to shield her herself with her arms when she was allegedly shot multiple times by Medina. Medina then took a photo of her body slumped backwards in the kitchen and posted it on Alfonso’s Facebook page to let Alfonso’s family know that she was dead and to rush over there and get his stepdaughter before turning himself to police, according to Detective Jonathan Grossman who found Alfonso’s body and questioned Medina during the homicide investigation.
