Transwoman Kills Boyfriend in Defense


A transgender woman has been booked on murder charges after stabbing her boyfriend to death in Bakersfield, Calif. Jacky Davis claims she stabbed her boyfriend, Arthur Arnold, in self-defense after the two started fighting while under the influence of methamphetamines last Sunda, according to television news station KGET.

"He lost it in his head and went crazy," she said. "I stabbed him to get him away from me. I'm not a violent person."

Arnold was taken to a hospital where he died.

Davis was in hiding for two days but was arrested Tuesday night without incident after being spotted getting into a taxi. The cab company told officers where Davis was dropped off.

Davis was working as a prostitute at the time of her arrest and was in the process of undergoing gender reassignment.

The two met in jail in 2002 when Arnold was awaiting trial on a misdemeanor of inappropriately touching two girls. They lived together for six years.

Davis is being held in the men's section of the downtown jail.
