Trans Panic Defense for brutal killer of Angie Zapata

ABC News: 'Gay Panic' Defense for Murder Suspect?
A man accused in the beating death of a transgender teenager he met online snapped when he learned in person that the 18-year-old living as a woman had male sex organs, authorities in Colorado said Wednesday..

[Later on July 16, Andrade said he asked Zapata outright whether she was
a man or woman. "I am all woman," Zapata allegedly told him, according
to the affidavit. He asked for proof and when she refused, Andrade told
investigators, he "grabbed Zapata's genital area and felt a penis."]
