Murderer. He raped and killed 21 year-old Terry Lee Chasteen and then murdered her three children, Misty (age 5), Steven (age 4) and Mark (age 2). Approximately two hours later, mushroom hunters discovered the bodies of Terry Lee Chasteen and her daughter, Misty, in the shallow waters of White Lick Creek. They notified the police, who immediately  searched the creek and discovered the bodies of the two boys 100 yards downstream. After his arrest, Judy proved to be a cold, calculating killer, showing no remorse for what he had done. He readily confessed to the murders, and during his trial, indicated to the jury that if he were freed, he would rape and kill again. At the trial, Judy's violent past came up and it was revealed that when Judy was 13 years old, he attempted to rape and kill a woman in Indianapolis, stabbing her repeatedly until the knife blade broke, then fracturing her skull with a hatchet. A week before he killed Terry Lee Chasteen, he was arrested for armed robbery. Judy had been earlier evaluated at the Central State Hospital, and was declared to be a sexual psychopath, yet despite that diagnosis, he was considered sane and knew right from wrong. Judy was found guilty of four counts of first-degree murder, under aggravating circumstances, and was executed in the electric chair at the Indiana State Prison on March 9, 1981.
