Allen Andrade, who faced trial this week for the murder of trans woman Angie Zapata, has been found GUILTY on all four charges!!! Guilty of first degree murder. Guilty of bias motivated crime. Guilty of car theft. Guilty of identity theft.
My heart is racing. I am so relieved and thankful to the jurors, who deliberated for only two hours. At 4 PM MDT, Allen Andrade will be sentenced to life without parole.
This is a bittersweet victory for the trans community. This is a small bit of justice for Angie Zapata. May she rest in peace.
