A Florida man is facing a life sentence in prison after being convicted of his wife’s 2013 murder.

The 33-year-old, named Derek Medina, was dubbed the “Facebook Killer” after he shared a photo of his wife’s corpse on the social media platform.

During his trial, Medina claimed he shot and killed his wife in an act of self-defense. State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle told People, “no family should ever have to see their daughter killed and then exhibited worldwide on the internet like some macabre trophy to a husband’s anger as was Jennifer Alfonso. Far, far too often this kind of domestic violence leads to injury and death. That’s why we all must end all forms of domestic violence. The jury carefully viewed all the evidence and came to the correct conclusion that Derek Medina coldly murdered his wife to heal his own injured ego.

Medina’s sentencing is scheduled to occur on January 11th, 2016.
