A 29-year-old man was sentenced to death Tuesday for raping, torturing and fatally stabbing an 84-year-old widow after breaking into her Anaheim home.
Authorities said Anthony Darnell Wade drank champagne and smoked a cigar as he left the crime scene.
Wade, a Los Angeles resident, broke into the home of Bessie Whyman through a broken window on January 2010 and attacked her. He raped Whyman and bound her hands and feet before punching and kicking her, according to Orange County prosecutors.
Alan Baker is incarcerated for kidnapping and torturing his step-mother’s brother. He now goes by “Sarah” and will be housed in a women’s prison in the UK when his sex reassignment surgery is complete.
