I know Ben Woody is still alive in prison for killing Norton's wife and child but Norton is deceased. His name was Donald Norton but they called him Chet. Anyone know what he died from? You want to talk about another horrific murder, this was awful. It happened in the 70's.
Christine and Chet Norton lived up above us in the Colonial Apts. with their 4 yr old son..he seemed friendly as Christine was..she was a teacher and it appeared they lived their lives around their son..then they moved from the apts. into Rockville to a house..he bought a pug dog from my friend for his sons birthday..the night of the murder Chet took them to dinner for spahgetti supper..knowing what they had waiting on them..he told her he was going out to play some poker and would be home later..the knife that Woody stabbed the little boy with went thru the child all the way into his crib mattress..killed Christine on her bed and then killed both dogs so they wouldnt bark.....he is where he is suppose to be..they buried Christine and her son together in the same casket,,,,

I vaguely remember the story. Is this the same Don Norton that attended Lebanon Junior High School in the mid 1960's?

I was just a child when this happened vaguely rememeber the story. And I dont wanna sound like I am probing,or bring up painful past memories for all involved,but was curious as to if Woody had any children himself,and where was he from?And was the horrible crime located right there in the city of Rockville?
He was born and raised in Montezuma, Indiana, and has a son named Jason.

Grew up in montezuma I was in 4th grade. Mrs. Norton was a teacher in place of miss ayers. She was a beautiful woman. Benny and his whole family are all trouble makers and always have been. I can see why he would do something like this. Ben killed the little boy and Chet murdered his wife. Didn't have the guts to do it himself to his own child.
