Transgender woman convicted of 3 murders in Spokane

A jury in Spokane has convicted a 65-year-old transgender woman of three counts of first-degree murder.

Donna Perry will be sentenced on July 24 in Spokane County Superior Court.

Perry used to be known as Douglas Perry before undergoing gender-reassignment surgery in 2000.

She was convicted Thursday in the killings of 26-year-old Yolanda Sapp, 34-year-old Nickie Lowe and 38-year-old Kathy Brisbois. The three worked as prostitutes in Spokane and were all shot during a four-month span in 1990. SEATTLE TIMES
