Ms. Campbell says that she wouldn’t have been charged for killing Jackson Marcelin last year if she was cisgender. Ms. Cambell said that Jackson Marcelin hit her with a board after she repeatedly refused to respond to his sexual advances. That’s when the south Florida transgender woman said she stabbed Jackson Marcelin in self-defense. Cambell is facing murder charges in a south Florida court this week.

Court documents show one witness told police “she noticed the subject with a sharp object in her right hand…the subject was taunting the victim…the victim had a wooden stick…and was walking towards the subject.”

Another witness said “Prior to the incident I observed the victim, Marcelin Jackson…harassing my roommate for at least 2-3 months. During the harassment, Marcelin would approach Cambell with comments such as ‘I want to have sex’ and ‘I want you to (expletive) my (expletive).'”
