‘Butcher of Gatineau’ granted parole, wants to live quiet life

Khaled Farhan, dubbed The Butcher of Gatineau by the press in 1999 after killing and then dismembering his lover days later, has won parole with the hopes of starting a new, quiet life as a transgender woman at an undisclosed halfway house.
After Farhan’s conviction, she(sic) was sent to a men’s prison, where she(sic) spent some time in solitary confinement. According to prison files, she(sic) was put in solitary confinement in 2010 after sending sexually inappropriate letters to guards.
Farhan was also placed in solitary confinement at her(sic) own request after she(sic) expressed a fear for her(sic) life because she identified as a trans woman. Farhan had no problems after being transferred to a women’s prison.
