Transsexual granny killer strikes again

A TRANSSEXUAL killer jailed for 10 years for killing a grandmother has been found guilty of violently robbing and bashing yet again, another elderly woman.

After almost six hours, a Brisbane District Court has found Derek “Shanika” Sinden, 45, guilty of robbing and bashing Margaret Baker, an 82-year-old woman.

Sinden robbed Baker after following her home from the Toombul Shopping Centre, on Brisbane’s northside, before bashing her unconscious and robbing her on January 12 this year.


This comes after Sinden was jailed for frightening 71-year-old Beryl Grace Brown to her death in April 1999.

Ms Brown suffered a heart attack and fatal stroke after Sinden, dressed up as a woman, attacked her in her Woolloongabba home.

Judge Bowskill will sentence Sinden for his latest actions at a later date.
