Justice Is Served... Hopefully

A man has been convicted of murdering a trans woman down in Texas and is scheduled to hear his sentence.
Man found guilty of murder in transgender woman's death
KVUE
November 06, 2017

AUSTIN - JonCasey Rowell -- the man who shot and killed a transgender woman in 2016 -- has been found guilty of murder, a jury found Monday.

Around 3 a.m. on Jan 22, 2016, Rowell shot and killed Monica Loera at her home, which is located along East Powell Lane. When police arrived at the scene, they discovered an ID card that belonged to Rowell and some money. Police then identified Rowell as the prime suspect.
[…]
He said there were searches on Google for "how to get away with murder," and on Backpage.com there were searches for "transsexual escorts." One was made on Jan. 22 at 2 a.m. Authorities say Loera was murdered about one hour later. Following her murder, there were clicks to news articles regarding the fatal shooting in North Austin.
As I wrote about yesterday, many men fantasize about having sex with a trans woman and then becomes transphobic about having sex with her.

Let us hope that the judge hands down a harsh sentence on him and doesn’t insult us with a slap of the hand for the killer.
