Today, the almost two years of suffering ended for Judy Malinowski died today. Her ex-boyfriend Michael Slager was sentenced to 11 years in prison in December 2016 on charges including felonious assault and aggravated arson. Because of Judy’s death today, Mr Slager will now be facing charges of aggrivated murder and could receive the death penalty if convicted.

“Following Malinowski’s death on Tuesday however, Franklin County Prosecutor Ron O’Brien said his office is now pursuing murder charges against him.

‘It would be our intention, and it has been all along, that should she pass away it was our intention to pursue a homicide charge,’ O’Brien said. ‘This day was not unexpected for probably a long time, but it’s sad that it finally arrived.’

In what has to be a sad legacy, her death comes when the Ohio house voted on Judy’s Law unaminously passing it in her honor. This law would:

amend sections 2903.11, 2929.01, 2929.13, and 2929.14 and to enact section 2941.1425 of the Revised Code to require an additional prison term of 6 years for felonious assault if the offender also is convicted of a specification that charges that the offender used an accelerant in committing the offense and that the harm caused by the violation resulted in a permanent, serious disfigurement or permanent, substantial incapacity”

The proposed law is due to be presented to the state senate tomorrow June 28th for a final vote. If the legislature passes, as expencted and signed into law, it would add an additional 6 years to anyone convicted of a crime of this nature.

In anticipation of this sad day, prosecutors obtained permission for Judy to give a videotaped deposition to be used in any future trial against her ex-boyfriend in the event she was unavailable to testify in person.

Sadly, that day came today.

Stay tuned

    THIS EVIL PSYCHOPATH WHO COMMITTED THIS BARBARIC CRIME SHOULD HAVE THE SAME THING DONE TO HIM. JAIL TIME IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH, AND LETHAL INJECTION IS TOO EASY. COULD SOME ONE PLEASE TELL ME WHY REAL JUSTICE CANNOT TAKE PLACE WHERE HE WOULD SUFFER IN THE SAME WAY THAT HE MADE HER SUFFER…ANYTHING SHORT OF THAT MAKES NO SENSE TO ME. I CAN’T SAY IT OR EXPRESS THIS OFTEN ENOUGH…THIS ANIMAL NEEDS TO DIE BUT NOT WITH
    DIGNITY AND NOT QUICKLY OR EASILY…BUT DO TO HIM JUST WHAT HE DID TO HER!!!! THAT TO ME WOULD BE REAL JUSTICE…AND IN THIS CASE REAL JUSTICE IS NEEDED……
