The “farewell letter” was published yesterday in a report from the G1 Globo-Nachrichten.
Araujo is said to have posed as his wife to make it look like a double suicide and to blame his family.
The letter, purportedly written by Francine, says: “We are tired of our families interfering so much in our lives.
“We are very much in love whether you accept it or not, so we decided to go together.
“We wanted a supportive family, but it’s hell for both sides. May you feel the weight of what you’ve done to us.”
Araujo reportedly posted a false update on his wife’s Facebook page on December 23, the day after her death
He also complained of “psychological pressure” on his family.
Affected family members, who they could not contact, broke down the door and found them dead in the couple’s home in Várzea Paulista, Brazil.
The house was stained with blood and Marcelo had injuries to his wrists and neck after apparently attempting suicide.
Araujo was taken to the hospital and then to the police station.
He reportedly confessed to slitting his wife’s throat while having s*x on December 22.
The G1 Globo report says the couple talked about Christmas dinner and their pregnancy.
An autopsy revealed two 6.3 and 2.4-inch neck injuries.
He also had a broken wrist and a head injury.
In August, a judge ordered Araujo to be tried by a jury.
His defense team appealed the ruling, which was upheld by a higher court on November 30.
The trial date has not been set.
