SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic (AP) — Police say a man in the Dominican Republic killed his ex-girlfriend and committed suicide after seeing a picture of her with another man on Facebook.

Police spokesman Maximo Baez says 24-year-old Valentin Nunez asked 25-year-old Marleni Suero to meet him at a motel in the capital of Santo Domingo late Wednesday. Authorities said he then shot her in the neck and head.

Baez said Thursday that relatives told police Nunez had seen Suero in a photo with a man she had recently visited in jail.

He says the couple had been together for three years but broke up about a month ago because Nunez had apparently abused her physically.
