HOUSTON The transgender widow of a Wharton firefighter had another legal setback Wednesday.
A judge denied Nikki Araguz s request for a new trial.
In May, she lost her court battle for half of Thomas Araguz s death benefits.
His family said, since Nikki was born a man, the marriage was void.
A Wharton County judge agreed.
Nikki Araguz said she plans to appeal the latest decision, too.
