Facebook murder suspect in court

Derek Medina appeared in court for the first time since he was charged with killing his wife, 26-year-old Jennifer Alfonso, and posting a graphic photo of her dead body on Facebook.

In an alleged online confession, Medina claimed he shot her because she was abusing him.

His attorneys asked the judge to take pictures of still visible bruises on Medina's body to preserve evidence.
