Derek Medina Admits to Killing his Wife by Posting Photos of the Crime on Facebook

Posted by:

Derek-MedinaMIAMI – This ‘gentle’man just surrendered to the Miami police department, but only after posting a status update on Facebook telling his ‘friends’ that he had just killed his wife, tired of being physically abused by her, referring to specific acts of violence that he claimed to have suffered at her hands. My prediction:

“His lawyers will advance the ‘battered husband syndrome,’ to mimic the often-used defense of ‘battered wife syndrome,’ used famously by Ellis Rubin and other lawyers defending wives who have killed their husbands. They’ll argue, ‘what’s good for the goose is good for the gander,’ otherwise you’re denying men ‘equal protection’ under the 14th Amendment, which guarantees equal treatment of both men and women under the law.” – Fort Lauderdale Criminal Defense Attorney John Castellano, quoted in The Examiner
