A transgender murderer has been moved from a female prison to a male prison after having sex with an inmate.
Kayleigh Woods had been serving a 26-year sentence at HMP Hewell in Worcestershire after slashing her flatmate’s throat in 2016. Shortly after arriving the prison in 2017, she requested a transfer to a female prison. Her request was granted, with officials at the Transgender Case Board taking into account she had not committed a sexual offence so was deemed to pose little risk. But only few weeks after she had been at the new prison, prison authorities found her naked with another convict.
“A toilet seat had also been broken. It was pretty clear what they’d been up to,” a source told the Sun.
“She and another inmate got very close and started a full-blown relationship in secret,” the source added. “The governor was notified and went up the wall.”
Woods has now been moved back to HMP Gartree in Leicestershire.
