05/16/2005: And from the "Great human achievements" department....
From Chuck Shepard's News of the Weird, so consider the source:
In April, in New Scotland, N.Y., Jean Balashek, 86, was found murdered, and police charged her daughter, Corianna Thompson, with the crime. Thompson's birth name was Corey Wayne Balashek, and before his sex change, he had served nine years for another killing. (Thus, Thompson/Balashek may be the first American ever charged with homicide in both genders.) [Times Union (Albany, N.Y.), 4-12-05]
