BOSTON (CBS) – A convicted killer who was granted a taxpayer-funded sex change may be costing the state even more money.

Robert Kosilek wants the state to pay for electrolysis treatment that he calls a medical necessity.

U.S. District Court Judge Mark Wolf says the state must hire an independent expert to determine whether the treatment is necessary.
