A TRANSGENDER teenager who stabbed her parents and dog to death before saying she felt no remorse has been sentenced to 40 years in prison.
Andrew Balcer, of Winthorp, Maine, attempted to justify the brutal murders by claiming she did it because her parents refused to accept her new identity of Andrea.

But the family rejected this, the Mirror reported, saying they were nothing but supportive, and the judge dismissed it as any kind of justification.
The cruel killings occurred on October 30, 2016, after the Balcer family watched Monty Python’s Life Of Brian.
In the early hours of the next morning, on the morning of Halloween, Andrea reportedly called 911 and calmly confessed she had just stabbed her parents, Antonio and Alice, to death.
She said: “I took my Ka-Bar [knife] and drove it straight into my mother’s back.
My father came up because he heard her screams and I stabbed the f**k out of himAndrea Balcer
“My father came up because he heard her screams and I stabbed the f**k out of him.”
She said they’d had an argument and she’d “snapped” but didn’t really know why she’d done it.
When asked if she was sure her parents were dead, she laughed and said, “Yeah, there’s no helping them.”
The family Chihuahua, Lily, was also brutally stabbed to death, apparently because she was barking.
Only Andrea’s brother had been spared and begging for his life, to which Andrea responded: “it’s not your day.”
I know I should be having some sort of guilt or remorse, but, honestly, I just don’t feel much of anythingAndrea Balcer
Her mother had reportedly been giving her a comforting hugs when she plunged the knife into her back nine times.
Antonio ran to help but his fate spoke volumes – he was found face down in the kitchen with 13 stab wounds and the murder weapon embedded in the floor next to him.
Andrea reportedly told police: “I know I should be having some sort of guilt or remorse, but, honestly, I just don’t feel much of anything.”
In court Andrea alleged Alice had been molesting her for years and she’d suffered physical and mental abuse at the hands of her dad.

There was no evidence of any abuse, and it ran in contradiction to the public image of the pair.
Hearings were initially heard in a juvenile court, but it was decided in 2017 that Andrea would be prosecuted as an adult.
Andrea pleaded guilty to two counts of murder and one count of aggravated cruelty to animals.

Andrew, now 20, said at her sentencing in December: “I am only here to ask for one thing: that is the forgiveness of my family. I am truly sorry for what I have done.”
Her brother, now 27, rejected her apologies and called his sibling a remorseless murderer.
He said: “You are an inhuman creature and the fact that you continue to pretend otherwise sickens me.”
