Angie Zapata's killer convicted

Little bit late on this, but Allen Andrade, the killer of transgendered woman Angie Zapata was convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to life in prison.

According to the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, this is the first time that a state hate crime statute led to a conviction in the murder of a transgendered person.
