Model and actress Monica Spear has been shot dead during a sickening week of murders in her native Venezuela.

The former Miss Venezuela, 29, and her estranged husband, Thomas Henry Berry, were killed during an attempted robbery after their car broke down on Puerto Cabello-Valencia highway on Monday (06Jan14).

Bandits reportedly opened fire on the couple after Spear and Berry locked themselves inside the vehicle as they approached.

The couple's five-year-old daughter was also shot in the leg, but is expected to live.

The family was on vacation in Spear's homeland and was expected to return to the U.S. this week (begs06Jan14).

Spear, full name Monica Spear Mootz, began her career as a model and went on to win the Miss Venezuela title in 2004.

She also tasted success as an actress and landed leading roles in several telenovelas, including La Mujer Pefecta and Flor Salvaje.

Her former co-star Jencarlos Canela paid tribute to the tragic actress in a tweet on Tuesday (07Jan13) and promised to look after her daughter, Maya.

His translated tweet reads: "I'm without words. I will miss my friend @MonicaSpear. And I love you, beautiful Maya. You are not alone!"
