James Baldwin, also known as ‘Jamie,’ is a South Carolina native and former police officer and dispatcher. In 2016, just a few days before Christmas, he murdered his wife Judy Orr Baldwin and staged the entire thing to appear to be an accident.
Initially, the officers thought it was true. However, after being informed, the friends and families pressed the investigating officer to further investigate the case as a homicide. James Baldwin and Judy Baldwin met and married in 2012, eight months after they met. Judy was known to be “Giddy” when she was with Baldwin.
Judy Orr Baldwin, a mother of two, had previously been married to Todd, who died in a motorcycle accident. In 2018, the trial for the murder began.
According to court records in South Carolina, he was arrested for arson and insurance fraud. However, he was released on bond for the same reason.
Judy Orr Baldwin, James Baldwin’s wife, was murdered by beating her to death. But he worked hard to make it appear to be an accident. He planned the incident and a story around it.
The testament stated that he and his wife were driving a jeep down a dark, rural road in Chester County, South Carolina. On December 14, 2016, she was staged as being ejected from the vehicle while steering it to avoid a collision on Old Richburg Road. His wife was ejected from the vehicle after the jeep collided with an embankment.
He also rushed her to the emergency room and explained everything to the doctors. However, the injuries discovered on Judy’s body during the autopsy were not the result of the accident. The suspicious relative discovered blood on the mantlepiece inside the house.
James clarified that it was due to an accident she had while decorating for Christmas. Judy was hit on the head three times. A 9-inch (229-millimeter) skull fracture was discovered.
Because of the inconsistency of the story with the incident, the investigators dug deeper into the details while James Baldwin maintained his innocence. Judy Baldwin died as a result of “blunt force trauma,” according to the coroner in Chester County.
Deputies from the Chester County Sheriff’s Office arrested James Baldwin after a grand jury returned an indictment bill against him. The final trial began on October 28, 2019, nearly four years after Judy’s death, at the Lancaster County Courthouse. The 2-hour trial ended with a guilty verdict, convicting James for his wife’s murder.
Jude Dan Hall of York County imposed a life sentence on James.
