Woman Accused Of 3 Murders Could Use Sex Change As Defense

Woman Accused Of 3 Murders Could Use Sex Change As Defense

A Spokane woman who's accused of killing three people may try to use her sex change as a possible defense for her alleged murder.

Sixty-two-year-old Donna Perry, then Douglas Perry, is accused of killing three prostitutes in Washington state when she was a man in early 1990. KHQ-TV explains Perry wasn't arrested, though, until police said DNA evidence linked her to the crimes more than two decades later.

Perry got her sex change operation a decade after the three prostitutes were killed, and KXLY points out she could use it as part of her defense.

Court documents say Perry told detectives she got the surgery in Thailand in 2000. Perry reportedly says she got it because women are less violent than men, and she hoped she would be less violent if she became a woman.

The documents show Perry also told a detective, "I'm not going to admit I killed anybody, I didn't. Donna has killed nobody. ... I don't know if Doug did or not, it was 20 years ago and I have no idea whether he did or did not."

The case against Perry is still in the early stages, though. According to KREM on Monday, she refused to show up to a bond hearing, but she ended up voluntarily appearing in court Tuesday. (Via )

The Spokesman-Review reports the judge set Perry's bond at $1 million. One of the homicide victim's brothers was in court Tuesday and said seeing Perry in court finally gave him some sense of closure.

KHQ-TV reports Perry will make her next court appearance March 25.

This person is still a man,doesn't matter if he had his gonads altered. He will never be a female no matter what some idiot psychologist may say. Best way to deal with murderers is to execute them,not coddle them.

Dude seriously got ripped off with that sex change. Even the gray-haired version of "her" in the courtroom video looks totally like a man. AOL didn't provide us with before and after photos, but I swear I saw the gray-haired "woman" sporting a mustache and beard in that video.

Well Donna, I wouldn't worry, they'll likely not give you the death penalty. Now giving it to Doug, that's a different story altogether.
