Police are investigating a man who showed up at a police station on Thursday and confessed to brutally killing his 26-year-old wife and posting a picture of her lifeless body on Facebook.

Jennifer Alonzo was found dead inside the couple’s home after Derek Medina, 31, showed up at the station and said he killed his wife during an argument, a local NBC affiliate reported.

The mother’s 10-year-old daughter was found at the scene unharmed, Miami-Dade police said.

Mr. Medina reportedly posted to Facebook a photo of his dead wife, captioned “RIP Jennifer Alonso.” According to the station, the photo showed a woman bent over backwards with her knees bent, her face and arm covered in blood.

He also posted to Facebook [sic], “I’m 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 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.”

Miami-Dade police are currently investigating the case, but no other information was made immediately available.
