ATLANTA, June 8 (UPI) -- An ex-fiancee has obtained a restraining order against the Georgia transsexual who falsely confessed to the murder of JonBenet Ramsey, officials say.

The 6-year-old Ramsey was killed Christmas Day 1996 in the basement of her family's Boulder, Colo., home. In 2006 John Mark Karr of Alabama confessed to the murder while being held in California on child pornography charges. He later said he was just present when the child was killed, but police could find no physical evidence against him.

Now Alexis Reich, a male-to-female transsexual living in Sandy Springs, Ga., has been served with the temporary restraining order at the request of San Francisco police, WGCL-TV, Atlanta, reported.

The order was on behalf of Samantha Alix Spiegel, Reich's former fiancee, after what she said were "ongoing death threats," the TV station said.
