Reactions From Trans Groups On Murder

Domestic violence and transgender  advocacy groups are reacting to the murder of a transgender woman in  Western Massachusetts. 

The husband of Christa Steele-Knudslien was arraigned on murder charges in North Adams court on  Monday. 

A joint statement by the Berkshire County-based Elizabeth Freeman Center and four other groups says Steele-Knudslien's death is a  reminder that of the extraordinary levels of violence faced by  transgender people. 

Mark Steele-Knudslien reportedly told police he had  argued with Christa and snapped before hitting her multiple times with a  hammer and stabbing her in the back.
