Former Sacramento transgender teacher arrested in Oakland triple homicide

The Sacremento Bee reports:

A Sacramento area teacher who made national news nearly two decades ago when she tried to retain her job at a Sacramento high school while undergoing a sex change, has been charged in an Oakland triple homicide.

Dana Rivers, 61, was arrested in Oakland on Friday on suspicion of killing Patricia Wright, 57, Charlotte Reed, 56, and 19-year-old Toto Diambu.

Police said Rivers was covered in blood and about to ride away on Reed's motorcycle when she was arrested. Authorities say the motive might have been a dispute over property. She was booked into Alameda County Jail on three counts of murder, arson and possession of metal knuckles.
