In August of 2015, Judy was set on fire by her ex-boyfriend and suffered injuries that would ultimately take her life. He was initially sentenced to only 11 years for his crime, but for Judy this was not enough. She spent the remaining two years of her life fighting for justice from her hospital bed. With the help of the Franklin County DA, Judy and her team managed to adapt a civil statute initially intended for mesothelioma victims to allow her to become the first woman to testify from beyond the grave, at the trial for her own murder.
“I never want another woman to go through what I have been through. If I can help only one, it will have been worth it.” – Judy Malinowski
