(Newser) – A Queens woman is defending herself against charges she murdered her ex-cop husband by arguing that the violent, "self-loathing" cross dresser drove her mad, reports the New York Daily News. "Here was a person engaged in self-loathing, remorse, and an Irish sense of guilt," said the attorney for the woman who has admitting pumping 11 bullets into her husband. The mother of two faces 25 years to life in prison if convicted.
