Back in October of 2008 Robert Hull Marko, who was a soldier stationed at Fort Carson, Colorado. was arrested for the rape and murder of Judilianna “Judi” Lawrence. Lawrence was a mentally challenged 19-year-old at the time of her brutal death. Marko met her on a Friday and she was never heard from again. The pair had met through MySpace.
When police approached Marko about Judi’s disappearance he said that they had gotten into an argument and that he left her in the mountains. He then led police to her body. It was determined that Marko had raped Judi Lawrence and slashed her throat.
Last week Marko was convicted of Judi Lawrence’s murder and will receive at least a mandatory life sentence when he is sentenced at the end of this month.
