Man guilty of muder of trans woman

Twelve years after the murder of 23 year old Robyn Brown in Februray 1997, James Hopkins from Leeds has been found guilty of her murder. BBC News has the story

I’ve not read any evidence that Robyn Brown was killed because she was transsexual; however, like many trans people she had ended up as a sex worker – an occupation in which the risks of violence are high.
