Yaz'min was shot, set on fire and her body dumped behind a garbage bin. In November 2016, Terry Brady was sentenced to life for her murder.

A transgender Florida woman’s family can now feel justice was doled out after the man convicted of killing her was sentenced to life in prison.

On Monday, Lee County Circuit Judge Frank Porter sentenced 47-year-old Terry Brady, of Fort Myers, Fla., to life in prison for shooting 31-year-old Yaz’min Shancez at least six times and then setting her body on fire before trying to dispose of her remains. Porter also denied an appeal by Brady’s lawyers seeking to overturn the second-degree murder conviction that a jury handed down in September, reports the Fort Myers News-Press.
