Jennifer Lynn Hearn
Six weeks ago, Jennifer Lynn Hearn started bragging on Facebook that her husband had left her, but she'd already found a new man: "Wow. I am so glad one person walked out of my life so others could walk in," she wrote.

Turns out, her husband, Carl "Cliff" Hearn, didn't exactly leave her. Police now say Jennifer Hearn shot and killed him during a late night argument and then buried him under a hog pen in their Melbourne back yard.

The Hearns were known to have a "turbulent" marriage, reports Florida Today, although police had never responded to any domestic violence complaints at the house.

The two had raised three daughters together in a large house on the outskirts of Melbourne since the mid-90s and ran a landscaping company together.

Two months ago, Jennifer Hearn started telling neighbors that her husband had "gone up north" to live with a girlfriend, according to Florida Today. Many were suspicious because he'd apparently left his truck behind.

Then sometime in the last week, an anonymous tip reached the Brevard County Sheriffs Department: Hearn had told a friend that she'd actually shot her husband during a fiery argument.

"Her story was that he left her high and dry and moved out," Lt. Tod Goodyear, a department spokesman, told the paper. "They had a history of problems. We never had any domestic-violence calls, but people have said he was abusive."

Yesterday, police started digging under a hog pen behind a shed in the Hearn's backyard. They found Cliff's decaying remains under about two feet of soil.

Jennifer Hearn, a 40-year-old with a clean criminal record, now faces a second-degree murder charge in her husband's death.

Were you one of the ones that we had to live in our car for due to the fact that he kicked us out??? You people get a life or better yet come live mine and you'd think twice before you talk like this about people.

They should never have arrested her,there are a lot of blacks around that the police can pin this on.Everyone in America knows that white people do not commit crimes especially murder! Coe on now pin this on a minority.

You should tell Goodyear that because she has everyone thinking he was abusive.  I knew him for 32 years.. she was the abusive one.  Like how they say he used drugs too... look at his picture and hers (she was the user.. wonder if they even tested her?)  Don't forget the event Oct 8 at Camp Holly.  Thank-you for sticking up for him... she would not leave.. nowhere or noone wanted her.  Why should he have to have left his own house that he built and all?  She is a liar, piece of shit and I hope she gets the book thrown at her.  You know the saying...THE TRUTH WILL COME OUT.  BE PATIENT AND THANK-YOU AGAIN FOR DEFENDING HIM... SAD IT IS TOO LATE BUT AT LEAST HOPEFULLY PEOPLE WILL LEARN SHE IS A LIAR!

If she would have not fed the hogs for a few days, they could have eaten all the evidence.

If you were to see her pictures on Facebook from 3-4 months ago you would not recognize her.  She has aged 20 years from the guilt.
