Two men in Puerto Rico pleaded guilty Monday to conspiracy to commit a hate crime involving a transgender woman who was killed more than three years ago.
The men were accused of making threats and used a paintball gun to shoot the victim, who police identified as Alexa Negrón Luciano. The men had identified her from social media posts about an incident in which Negrón had used the women’s bathroom at a fast-food restaurant, according to the US Attorney’s Office.
