Transcript HOUSTON VOICE www.houston voice.com APRIL 11, 2003 11 police beat Philly district attorney to investigate trans homicide PHILADELPHIA -Philadelphia District Attorney Lynne Abraham decided April 3 to investigate the killing of Nizah Morris, a transgendered woman bashed on the head in December, the Philadelphia Daily News reported. "If the district attorney can unearth something, we'll be happy with that," Homicide Capt. Thomas Lippo said. Gay activists accuse police of a sloppy investigation, but authorities say they have no clues and no witnesses. Morris, 47, was found lying in the street with a massive head wound on Dec. 22. The medical examiner's office said she was murdered, but police didn't rule it a homicide for weeks, fueling criticism that they were not taking the case seriously because Morris was transgendei-ed. On the night of her attack. Morris collapsed drunk outside a gay bar and refused a ride home in a police car Passing motorists found her lying in the street minutes later. Police won't release toxicology reports and did not file a report on offering Morris a ride. Philadelphia District Attorney Lynne Abraham opened an investigation into the slaying of a transgendered woman after criticism that police weren't doing enough to find the killer. (Photo by Dan Loh/AP) Three held over for trial in Calif, trans teen killing HAYWARD, Calif. (AP) - Three men pleaded innocent to murder April 2 in the killing of transgendered teen Gwen Araujo, and their trials could start nine months to a year from now, said Gloria Allred, attorney for the victim's family. The killing took place Oct. 4 after Araujo was discovered to be biologically male at a party at the home of Jose Antonio Merel, 23. Araujo was beaten to death, and her body was buried in a shallow grave. Merel, along with Jason Michael Cazares and Michael William Magidson, both 22, face charges of murder in a hate crime. A fourth man, Jaron Chase Nabors, 20, pleaded guilty to voluntary manslaughter in return for testifying against his friends. Madigson was released on bail in February to undergo drug counseling, but was sent back to jail at the end of the preliminary hearing. No action has been taken on a motion by his lawyers to again grant bail. Lesbian judge in Calif, held for trial in domestic dispute SANTA MARIA, Calif. (AP) - A lesbian Santa Barbara County judge was ordered April 1 to stand trial on charges of battery, brandishing a gun and drunken driving, which could end her career on the bench if convicted. The trial date will likely be set at an April 18 hearing. Hall, 52, was arrested Dec. 21 after an argument with her domestic partner, Deidra Dykeman, who told officers Hall threatened to shoot one of their dogs. The confrontation came after Dykeman discovered that Hall took some Christmas wrappings that Dykeman purchased for herself. "I never saw her like that before," Dykeman said in a preliminary hearing. Hall brandished a loaded .38-cal- iber revolver and smashed the telephone before driving off, according to Dykeman. Hall was later arrested for drunken driving with a 0.18 blood-alcohol level, more than twice the legal limit. Using a gun to dissuade a witness and destroying a telephone to block calls to police are felonies. Partner arrested in gay leader's stabbing death WILKES-BARRE, Pa. (AP) — A man was arrested and charged with criminal homicide in the death of his lover April 3 after telling police the lover attacked him then fled. Kenneth Stephens, 21, told police he was stabbed by Michael Pierson, a 40- year-old gay activist and health educator, during a Jan. 28 domestic argument. Stephens was hospitalized, and police filed a warrant charging Pierson with assault. Pierson's body was found March 12 in a golf course lake near where the argument allegedly took place. An autopsy showed that Pierson suffered a single, fatal stab wound to the chest. "[Stephens] never indicated that Mr. Pierson had been stabbed or injured in any manner," said Trooper Chuck Sands. Stephens is being held without bail. Pierson's friends said the couple broke up a few days before he disappeared. Accused gay LAPD deputy chief joined program to boost pension LOS ANGELES — Two days after gay Los Angeles Police Department Deputy Chief David Kalish was suspended over allegations that he sexually abused male teens in a police-youth program in the '70s, he joined a deferred pension program that boosts his income more than 60 percent, according to the Los Angeles Times. The city program pays each month into an interest-earning account to be spent at retirement. Employees who sign up must retire within five years. "It appears that he qualifies for it," said Capt. Jim Tatreau, director of the Command Officers Assn. "But this is certainly not what the program was designed for." Whatever the outcome of the criminal investigation, which the district attorney is still considering turning over to a grand jury, Kalish will receive the extra payments that began accruing April 1. Six people, including three who contacted authorities after Kalish's suspension became public, allege that Kalish abused them.
