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.

Now I've heard it all. Man up, or woman up as the case may be. Whether Doug did it, Donna still has to pay the price. It's the same basic person, just a different sex now.

Newsy, you make me sick using the feminine title for this awful excuse for a man trying to look feminine. So PC.

As a member of the GLBT Community, this person "does not" get "any sympathy from me. I have doubts that this person is a "true transsexual."

This person really gives our community a bad image. Throw the book at her.

Yeah, wouldn't want to give transsexuals a bad image. Look at any transsexual's background and you will hear some really f'd up story about too many acid trips or rape or "opened-minded" parents who see some normal hint of some boy wanting to do something vaguely girlish and indulging him to "be a girl". Let's admit they are broken people who manifest their problem in crossdressing and genital mutilation, let them live as happy a life as possible, but don't subject some child to their dementia by allowing them to adopt some poor innocent child.

Bogus. He's got a mustache and a beard AND he's violent. The courts up here won't fall for this nonsense. Simply put, this is a guy trying to get out of killing three normal women.

The court system of USA is really messed up. We have a teenager who got off from killing 3 b/c his parents were so rich; and he did not know right from wrong. We have men getting off from killing young men over loud music or wearing a hoodie. We have a man who killed a young girl over eggs thrown at his car. Now we have this? Really??? Sounds like a lawyer ploy to get off, write a book, make a million and . . . . . . . . THIS he*she*it killed 3 people. What does it take for justice to be served?

Less violent? I guarantee you that strapping this freak onto a gurney and hooking him/her up to the lethal injection machine and turning it on...will make him/her less violent...PERMANENTLY!!
