Killer who got free sex change in prison now hates the women’s prison

You’s think (s)he would be thrilled.

Not so. The first U.S. inmate to have taxpayer-funded sex reassignment surgery says (s)he’s been mistreated since being transferred to a California women’s prison.

In a hand-written federal court filing, convicted killer Shiloh Heavenly Quine called the housing at the Central California Women’s Facility in Chowchilla a “torture unit.”

State officials say (s)he’s being treated like other female inmates.

Quine, 57, had the surgery (s)he had long sought in January and was moved from a men’s prison last month.

Quine’s attorneys at the nonprofit Transgender Law Center did not respond to repeated calls and emails over two days.

Quine was known as Rodney James Quine when (s)he and an accomplice kidnapped and fatally shot a 33-year-old father of three, in downtown Los Angeles in 1980, stealing $80 and his car during a drug- and alcohol-fueled rampage.
