Brianna Ghey: Two English teenagers charged with murder of young transgender woman | United Kingdom

The two 15-year-olds arrested in connection with the murder of Brianna Ghey, a 16-year-old transgender girl who was found dead on Saturday in Cheshire, UK, were formally charged with murder this Wednesday.

A girl and a boy were arrested on Monday, but only this Tuesday did police say the young woman’s death may be a hate crime, although there is no evidence yet. The direction of the investigation changed after the interrogation of the two young men. Cheshire’s chief constable confirmed to Reuters that “all lines are being investigated, including whether it was a hate crime”.
