MIAMI (AP) — A man accused of killing his wife and then posting a confession and a bloody picture of her body on Facebook has pleaded not guilty in Florida.
Prosecutors say 31-year-old Derek Medina fatally shot 26-year-old Jennifer Alfonso at their South Miami townhome earlier this month. A judge on Thursday set a tentative trial date of Nov. 4.
Medina is charged with second-degree murder, but The Miami Herald (http://hrld.us/12OBS5L ) reports prosecutors will likely seek a first-degree murder indictment when the grand jury returns in September.
Alfonso's relatives didn't speak in court Thursday.
Medina's attorney Sam Zangeneh says his team hasn't decided on a defense strategy yet.
Court records indicate Alfonso was shot six to eight times during an argument with Medina.
