Robert James Spells arrested for the murder of LA Transwoman Deshawnda Sanchez


21-year-old transgender woman Deshawnda Sanchez was pounding at the front door to a house on South Wilton Place and West 62nd Street early Wednesday December 3rd when police say Robert James Spells exited his car and killed her.

“Because of the last word of this innocent victim, we were able to apprehend a vicious killer,” said LAPD Capt. Peter Whittingham, who indicated this may have been a hate crime since Spells knew the victim.
