Muhlaysia Booker: Man charged with murder of Dallas transgender woman

Kendrell Lavar Lyles

The fatal shooting of Booker sent shock-waves across the US.

Weeks earlier, she was assaulted during a traffic accident and video of the incident was shared on social media.

Detectives connected Lyles to Booker's death while investigating the two other killings, Geron said. On May 22, a woman died from injuries sustained from a gunshot wound, and the following day, a man was shot during a drug transaction between him and Lyles. The victims have not been named.

During the course of investigating these two cases, detectives recognized that Arrestee Lyles drove the same type vehicle that is believed to have picked up Muhlaysia Booker on May 18, 2019. Although it was flagged as a hate crime, gender identity is not listed under Texas' hate crime statute. The victim walked up to her vehicle and he was shot by Arrestee Lyles and later died. Lyles has been charged with three counts of murder.

'Hazard Will Fill Real Madrid Fans' Eyes With Joy'
Courtois , who forced Chelsea's hand by refusing to sign a new contract last summer, had encouraged Hazard to follow his lead and join Madrid on multiple occasions during the season.

Investigators have not determined a motive in the killings. He is also charged with the murder of a woman shot to death May 22 at 7815 McCallum Blvd., and with the murder of a man shot to death May 23 at 17509 Coit Road.

Geron says Lyles also is being investigated in connection with the death of 26-year-old transgender woman Chynal Lindsey, whose body was found June 1 in a Dallas lake. The driver allegedly pointed a gun at her and refused to let her leave unless she paid for the damage. Video shows several men beating her. Someone offered Edward Thomas, 29, $200 to beat Booker, according to an affidavit. A mob of men attacked her, while others spewed homophobic pejoratives and slurs at her.

A second person was arrested for kicking Ms Booker in the face but has not been charged. Seen as the latest victim in a string of violent acts against trans women in the area.

Human Rights Campaign (HRC) said that at least 26 trans people were killed across the U.S. past year - the majority of whom were African-American trans women. The informant, Geron said, knew details about the shooting that only the murderer or someone who knew the murderer would have known.
