An off-duty Brazilian military police officer was recorded killing his wife by punching her five times in the face and shooting her at least twice after an argument that started inside their car led to a fight in the street.

According to The New York Post, the video allegedly shows Thiago de Lima, a 36-year-old Brazilian military police officer, firing a gun at his wife, 33-year-old Erika de Lima, at least twice before she collapsed on the ground during the argument that occurred on Sunday. CNN Brasil reported that Thiago and Erika de Lima were married for roughly six months prior to the incident.

Before the military police officer fatally shot his wife, surveillance footage showed Erika de Lima attempting to get her husband out of the vehicle before he left the vehicle and began punching her repeatedly in the face.

According to The New York Post, Thiago de Lima entered the car and began driving away after the shooting incident; however, he eventually returned to the scene of the crime and attempted to get his wife back in the car. Brazilian outlet G1 reported that the military police officer took his wife to the hospital, where she was declared dead.

According to G1, Thiago de Lima is currently facing charges for femicide, which is the crime designation for a homicide that is linked to domestic violence and discrimination against women.

G1 reported that roughly a month before the fatal shooting, Erika de Lima filed a police report due to a domestic violence threat by her husband; however, she did not pursue charges against the military police officer.

At the time of the previous incident, Erika de Lima claimed that Thiago de Lima had threatened her by pointing a gun at her head after the two attended a nightclub. The military police officer denied any claims that he threatened his wife or pointed a gun at her.

Erika de Lima leaves behind two daughters from a prior relationship, according to The New York Post.
