Search Warrant Reveals Details In Facebook Killing

MIAMI (AP) — A newly released search warrant reveals a South Miami man told detectives he shot his wife five to six times before posting a confession and a picture of her bloody body on Facebook.

The Miami Herald reports detectives took two Samsung cellphones, three Dell computers and an iPad from Derek Medina’s townhome after the Aug. 8 shooting.

The warrant also shows they seized a Taser stun gun, a Bersa Thunder .380-caliber pistol and two other pistols and ammunition and a large knife from the kitchen.

Police say Medina killed 26-year-old Jennifer Alfonso during an argument. Her 10-year-old daughter from a previous relationship was not injured.

Medina told police Alfonso threatened him with a knife.

Median is scheduled for arraignment on Aug. 29.
