Celine Walker, 36, was found shot to death in a motel room in Jacksonville, Florida in February.
She was pronounced dead on February 4, meaning that she was the second trans woman to be killed within a week.However, police reports misgendered Walker and used her dead name meaning initial reports did not recognise her trans identity and caused the announcement of her death to be delayed by over a week.

MICHIGAN CITY — The rape trial against former Michigan City police officer Thomas K. Jackson is underway in La Porte Superior Court 1 this week.
In opening statements Tuesday morning, the state told the jury the victim is an intellectually disabled 25-year-old woman whose disability prohibits her from being able to consent to sex.
Deputy Prosecutor Elizabeth Boehm described the victim as unable to drive, do laundry, remember to perform basic hygiene practices or write much more than her own name.
However, she said, a Westville police officer discovered the woman and Jackson, then 51, having sex in a van parked at a baseball field on March 5, 2017.
According to Boehm, the victim had been told not to tell anyone about the reported sexual encounters she had had with Jackson.
“The state’s position is that (victim) could not consent due to her disability,” Boehm told the jury.
Craig Braje, Jackson’s defense attorney, confirmed that Jackson and the woman were approached by an officer at a baseball field. However, he said, the officer only saw movement in the van and not sex, and felt satisfied with their conversation enough to allow the two to leave the scene together.
The state alleges a sexual relationship between Jackson and the victim existed from February 2013 through March 2017, but Braje said no evidence exists to prove such a claim.
He described how Jackson and the woman met: At the home of one of her relatives, who also was friends with Jackson. The man reportedly hosted multiple parties to which both were invited, as well as several other guests.
Braje indicated it was the victim’s mother who had asked Jackson to spend time with her daughter, and take her out to do activities. But, he said, “(Victim) acted as an adult, did things as an adult, performed and had an adult lifestyle.”
According to Braje, the woman’s IQ measurements are 15 to 20 years old, and her dyslexia diagnosis doesn’t prohibit her from consenting to sex.
In fact, he said, the woman’s mother had provided her daughter with thorough sex education as a teenager, going as far as to buy the girl a vibrator when she turned 18 and take her to a male strip club and casino when she turned 21.
Additionally, the alleged victim had had previous boyfriends and had been engaged at one point in time, with her mother’s permission to have sex after she was married, Braje told the jury.
He contended the young woman was not mad at or scared of Jackson, but of the idea that she might be arrested after having been approached by the on-duty police officer. He suggested that her fear of arrest is what prompted her to tell her mother about the sexual relationship she had with Jackson.
Braje told the jury that Jackson was wrong for having cheated on his wife, but said his client did not rape anyone.
“(Victim’s mother) didn’t want the sexual relationship to be with Tom Jackson, and that is understandable, but it’s not criminal,” Braje concluded.
According to court documents, the victim has the mental and emotional abilities of a child between the ages of 10 and 12. She is expected to testify sometime on Wednesday.
Jackson resigned from the Michigan City Police Department last March after becoming the subject of investigation. He faces four counts of Level 3 felony rape in which the victim is mentally disabled or deficient, each of which carries a potential sentence of 3 to 16 years in the Indiana Department of Correction.
Pending the resolution of his case, Jackson remains free on $2,500 cash bond and GPS monitoring.

RIPLEY COUNTY, IN (FOX19) –A Ripley County, Indiana, council member faces sex charges related to alleged misconduct while he was an assistant coach with the Jac-Cen-Del High School girls basketball team in Osgood, Indiana.
Indiana State Police arrested Chad Pindell, 36, of Napoleon, Sunday afternoon. Pindell represents Ripley County District 3 on council. His four-year term is set to expire this year, and he is up for reelection in May, according to County Clerk Ginger Bradford.
Investigators say Pindell contacted a 17-year-old Jac-Cen-Del High School student through social media early this year and sent nude photos of himself to the girl. At some point, he and the student allegedly engaged in sexual activity while at the high school.
Pindell is charged with child seduction and dissemination of harmful material to a minor — both felonies.
Police began investigating in February 2018 when they were contacted after Jac-Cen-Del Community School Corporation became aware of possible improper behavior between Pindell and a female student at the high school.
At the time, Pindell was a volunteer assistant coach for the Jac-Cen-Del High School girls basketball team. School documents show that Pindell resigned from his volunteer coach position Feb. 19.
Pindell is in Ripley County Jail without bond until he appears in circuit court.
Police say the Ripley County Prosecutor’s Office and the Indiana Department of Child Services assisted in the investigation and arrest.
A trans woman is suing a prison after officers allegedly demanded to see her genitals before letting her visit her brother.
In a lawsuit filed earlier this week, 48-year-old China Nelson began her case against a Louisiana state prison after she claims she was barred from entering the prison for refusing to be strip-searched.
According to NBC News, Nelson was prevented from entering the maximum security prison after a full body scanner detected an “unknown object” in her trousers.
Nelson claims that she had been approved as a visitor in Louisiana State Penitentiary for over 14 years prior to the visit in 2017, and had never been asked to strip before.
“I think this was a new machine or a new screening process,” said Galen Hair, the attorney representing Nelson in the case.
The lawsuit states that after a full body scan, a prison officer asked identified something in Nelson’s underwear. Nelson then said she was trans, using her driving licence to help explain her situation to the officer.
“When an unknown guard stated that she saw ‘something’ in Ms. Nelson’s pants, Ms. Nelson acknowledged that she was born a male as indicated on her driver’s license in an effort to explain the ‘something’ the guard stated she saw,” the lawsuit states.
However, after being escorted to a men’s bathroom by two guards, Nelson refused to strip.
The officers then reportedly told Nelson that she “would have to reveal her genitalia before being permitted to leave the premises,” and then demanded to search her car.
The unnamed woman, who has been living as female for 40 years, told her representatives that she is being forcibly strip-searched, groped and harassed after being jailed for a non-violent drugs offence in a men’s prison.
