Man accused of killing wife, posts picture to Facebook pleads not guilty

facebook murder

MIAMI, Fla.- A man accused of shooting his wife and then posting a picture of her body covered in blood on Facebook has pleaded not guilty to the crime on Thursday.

On the night of the murder, Derek Medina posted a note to Facebook saying, “I’m going to prison or death sentence for killing my wife. You’ll see me in the news.”

Thursday, Medina pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder.

Saam Zangeneh, Medina’s defense attorney, said, “In Florida, we have affirmative defenses so it doesn’t preclude someone from presenting a defense even though the issue of ‘Who did it?’ is not a question.”

Medina is being held without bond for the crime.

He is currently facing second-degree murder, which is the highest the state attorney could charge.

However, a grand jury could charge him with first-degree murder in September.

If he is charged with first-degree murder, he could face a death sentence.
