    You say Judy's family helped her which family was that. Her mother and father both died from cancer yeas ago and her grand mother Emma gave all her money to Judy's sister Janet. Emma ignored Judy. The reason I know this is because I was married to Judy's Uncle Louie. Let me tell you about the family. I was married into the family for 28 years. After Louie passed away and his service was over. The head of the family came to me and said that I was no longer part of the family. So now tell me what family helped her because I know for a fact it wasn't the Gohl family. I'm sorry that someone died because of what happened but none of us was there to really know what happened.

    her family has helped her many times she is a drunk and a drug addict. and who know you might be the next one she goes after. there is always away to keep from killing someone she wasn't taken to the hospital she wasn't beaten up ........come on give it a break she needs to be behind bars for along time.

    No one who has posted anything here was not actually present when this took place. From former reports Judy and Dwayne were both homeless and obviously did not receive the needed support from their respective family members to be able to live a normal life in their times of need. From what everyone was saying before this article-was that she did it in self-defense. I am a woman and if some drunk guy was harassing me I wouldn't care if he only had 1 arm. I am going to defend myself. A lot of times when someone has been drinking they get more violent. This is sill a physical fight between a man and a women. Again, if one of you was there-- why didn't you help stop it. But you weren't there, so you really don't have room to talk.

    Uncle Kelly...very loved and missed. i wanted to hate judy for this. but to hate her for doing this will not bring him back...so i dont! everything happens for a reason we may not know the reasons but we do know he is in a better place now. this may have been an accident who knows...but he WAS injured he only had ONE working arm, he could not use his right. he was drinking that night & that made him even more weak. the toxology on both came back..judy was SOBER. nothing in her. which makes her stronger & in her right mind so i truly believe she could have resulted to something else besides the knife. but she didnt..whats done is done. trust me the family and i want to see her get prison time for the crime she committed more than anyone out there. we dont want her to walk away from killing someone with a slap on the wrist & we dont want his 10yr to think its right. its just not justice for us. but its not our choice. i trust God and trust that he will place her where he wants her.

    Sure, what she did was terrible. What we don't know however, is what he did to her that she resorted to this crime.
