California taxpayers will be funding a convicted murder's sex change operation, according to the prisoner's attorneys.

Shiloh Heavenly Quine, 57, who is serving a life sentence for murder, will be receiving "sex-reassignment surgery" and will be transferred to a women's prison, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The state of California will cover much of the funds for Quine's operation, which will be the first to take place under a new Golden State standard.

Quine, who was born Rodney James Quine according to CNS News, killed a man in 1980 and stole his car during a drug and alcohol-fueled rampage, Abby Huntsman reported.

The Times reported that Farida Baig, the daughter of victim Shahid Ali Baig, legally petitioned to block the surgery but was unsuccessful:

"My dad begged for his life... I'm helping pay for [Quine's] surgery... It's kind of like a slap in the face," Baig said.

Department of Corrections spokeswoman Terry Thornton said the 8th Amendment provides for medically necessary treatment for inmates.
