Cross-dresser on trial in pastor's killing

(Fort Worth Star-Telegram) Just one day after an Arlington church pastor was killed and his secretary badly beaten, their accused killer partied at a Dallas nightclub in new clothes, a witness testified Wednesday.

Tracey Nixon, a male cross-dresser who took the stand wearing women’s clothes and bright pink lipstick, said he picked up Steven Lawayne Nelson in Arlington and they spent about three hours at the nightclub before going to Nixon’s home in Forney for the night.

Nixon said he and Nelson had an “on-again, off-again” relationship.

Nixon said Nelson was wearing a bright green Oscar the Grouch T-shirt, new white Nike Air Jordan shoes and flashy silver jewelry — items that other witnesses have said he purchased at The Parks at Arlington mall with a stolen Discover card just hours after the killing on March 3, 2011, at NorthPointe Baptist Church in north Arlington.
