Man Found Guilty in Death of Gender-Fluid Teen He Thought Was Biologically Female - Blogged by: @RaquelHarrisTV ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Friday, 90 minutes was all a jury needed to give 23-year-old JorgeSandersGalvez’s guilty verdict in the murder of KedarieJohnson, a gender-fluid teenager. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sanders-Galvez and his friend, Jaron Purham, were found guilty of first-degree murder in the killing of Johnson, who was found dead in an alley with two gunshots in his chest on March 2, 2016. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sanders-Galvez and Purham gagged Johnson, covered his head in a bag and drenched his body with bleach. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sanders-Galvez and Purham met Johnson in a Hy-Vee and were under the impression that Johnson was biologically female. At the time, Johnson was wearing leggings, hair extensions with a pink head band. The two decided they wanted to take the teen back to a local but popular meeting spot for sex. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Prosecutors say when the duo discovered Johnson wasn't biologically female they stuffed a plastic bag down his throat, covered his mouth with a ripped T- shirt, went to an alley and killed him. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The trial lasted only nine days with two days of jury selection. The jury consisted of eleven Caucasians and one African-American person. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sanders-Galvez will be officially sentenced to mandatory life in prison on Dec. 18 without any possibility of parole. Purham will be tried separately and also charged with first-degree murder.
