San Antonio Man Who Pushed Trans Woman into River Won't Be Tried for Her Death

LGBT activists plan to protest outside a Texas court after learning that a man who killed a transgender woman by pushing her into the San Antonio river will not face trial.

Mark Daniel Lewis, 20, is alleged to have killed Kenne McFadden by pushing her into the San Antonio River last year. McFadden, 26, was under the influence of alcohol and Lewis is accused of failing to help her, therefore causing the woman's death.

LGBT advocacy groups have responded with anger, and have highlighted that McFadden was at least the twelfth transgender person to be killed in the U.S. in 2017. Almost all of the victims were black women. Activists plan to march in front of Bexar County District Attorney’s office on March 13.

A barge operator discovered McFadden’s body floating in the water on April 9, 2017 near East Commerce and South St. Mary’s, the San Antonio Current reported. In November, Lewis was charged with manslaughter. He is also on probation for failing to register as a sex offender in relation to a separate case.
