US: Trans model still loves ex-partner despite violent attack

December 13, 2012

Jury deliberations have begun in a New York court case of a 19 stone (265 pound) fireman accused of attacking his transgender ex-lover.

ABC News reports 29-year old Taylor Murphy – a body builder who once posed as Mr March in a fire fighter calendar – is accused of abusing Claudia Charriez.

Charriez, 31, previously had a short stint on the reality show “America’s Next Top Model” in 2006.

She was kicked off the show after revealing she was born male.

Murphy and Charriez dated on-and-off for several years.

However, prosecutors say the relationship eventually turned sour and it’s alleged Taylor called Charriez more than 1,000 times and erupted one night at a strip club in her hotel room.

The court heard she was choked so hard a contact lens popped out of her eye, but she admits she is still in love with the defendant.

The case continues.
