Arguments to begin in Greeley transgender slaying trial

GREELEY, Colorado ” Opening arguments are expected Thursday in the trial of a Thornton man accused in the July slaying of a transgendered woman.

Thirty-two-year-old Allen Andrade is charged with first-degree murder and a bias-motivated crime in the death of 18-year-old Angie Zapata.

Weld County District attorney’s spokeswoman Jennifer Finch says opening arguments could begin as early as midmorning, once attorneys finish choosing a jury.



Prosecutors allege Andrade beat Zapata with a fire extinguisher after spending the night at her Greeley apartment and then finding out she was biologically male.

The two had met through a mobile networking site.
