Former Miss Venezuela Monica Spear, 29, and her ex-husband Henry Thomas Berry, 39, were murdered late Monday night near Puerto Cabello which is Venezuela’s main port, according to ABC News on Tuesday.

The couple’s car reportedly broke down and they resisted a robbery which occurred while they were awaiting a tow truck. The robbery and murder happened in front of the couple’s five-year-old daughter. The daughter experienced some injuries, but the report did not specify what they were. She is in stable condition after receiving medical assistance.

In addition to being Miss Venezuela in 2005, Spear was a popular soap opera actress. Spear and Berry are said to have had a good relationship even though they were divorced.

The murder of the popular actress ignited angry comments on social media which criticized the populist government’s extremely poor record on Venezuela’s crime and murder. The report asserts that Venezuela has one of the highest murder rates and violent crime rates in the world.
