An Onondaga County, New York grand jury has ruled the murder of a transgender woman was motivated by hate, possibly adding 5 years to the murderer’s prison sentence, News 10 Now reports.

Twenty-two-year-old Latiesha Green was killed on November 14, a Friday, sitting in a car parked outside a friend’s Syracuse house. She, her openly gay brother Mark Cannon, and a third person were in the car while people in the home yelled gay slurs at them, police say.
