Trial Date Set For Facebook Killer

Trial Date Set For Facebook Killer

The Facebook killer has a date with justice.

The South Miami man who allegedly shot his wife to death and then posted a picture of her dead body on Facebook will go to trial October 14th, 2014.

Derek Medina has claimed self-defense in the case, saying his wife attacked him first with a knife and then began relentlessly punching him.

Medina turned himself in to police shortly after the killing, telling detectives that Jennifer Alfonso posed a lethal threat after he disarmed her of a knife during a dramatic fight in the kitchen of their South Miami townhouse.

Medina told officers he went directly to the police station to report the incident, because he is not a murderer and killed in self-defense.
