Islan nettles

James Dixon was sentenced today for fatally beating Islan Nettles in 2013.
He is expected to get 12 years in prison.
Nettles was beaten to death in Harlem in August 2013.
Misdemeanor charges against a Harlem man accused of beating to death transgender woman Islan Nettles have been dropped, due to confusion over who was involved in the assault.
Another suspect has come forward to admit to beating Islan Nettles.
The medical examiner says Nettles died from blunt impact injuries to her head; cops are now investigating whether the suspect used antigay epithets during the attack.
A transgender woman who was brutally beaten in Harlem Saturday night succumbed to her injuries yesterday in Harlem Hospital.
