A cameraman from the program Ocurrio Asi, or "That's the Way It Happened," on Spanish-language Channel 51 captured Emilio Nunez shooting his ex-wife, Maritza Martin, at Our Lady Queen of Heaven Cemetery in North Lauderdale, Florida on Jan. 18, 1993. Nunez blamed his ex-wife for the suicide of their daughter, Yoandra Nunez, a 15 year old Northeast High School freshman who was 13 weeks pregnant. Their daughter committed suicide on Thanksgiving Day 1992, and was buried at Queen of Heaven. Maritza Martin was buried close to her daughter. Nunez was convicted of first-degree murder in his ex-wife's shooting.
