I hope that everyone is smart enough to know that there are 2 sides to every story before you put this man away and ruin what is left of his life. I believe he was in a situation to where it was kill or be killed. What would you do? I know the family and I also know that he loved this woman. It was a freak accident. I know what happened wasn't right and he ran scared. But look at both sides before you pass judgement.Just because she got the bad end of the deal doesn't mean that it was all Mr. Neal's fault either.

I used to be marrried to this man. And he harmed anyones life he came in contact with. Him getting life in prison isnt the right punishment for him , I believe he should be made to feel the hell and the abuse he inflected on other ppl. Neldon is a sick man and very very evil, anyone felling sorry for the punk has never been at the other end of his fist.

I was married to this sorry excuse for a man, anyone knowing him knows he destroyed anyones life that he came in contact with. Sentencing in prison for the rest of his life isnt enough, he should be made to face the abuse and fear he caused on so many ppl lives. Anyone feeling sorry for this man and making excuses for what he has done is no better than he is. He should never get out of prison, and may the rest of his life give back to him what he so willingly dished out on me and others he destroyed

I do know personally BOTH sides to the story I was there and Neldon is EVIL I pray he gets exactly what he deserves... He deserves to not only be treated the way he ended her life but the way he treated her while she was with him. He would not lift a finger but expected her to lift brush while he just sat on the back hoe(i was there helping her lift the brush). he abused her on many occassions. he has mental issues and does not deserve to breath air maybe some toxic eat your organs air. Judy was the most kindest, loving, giving,etc(good)person i know. she is missed by many especially her granddaughter who cries because she misses her Grandma Bob--and wonders why the Lord will not let her see her. I love you Judy and Thank You for Saving my Life from this Killer. I tried to get her to leave him she knew he was going to kill her. Neldon is a freeloader and now is freeloading from the state I hope he gets what he deserves--hey why don't you ask Nathan his son about the fist fight he and Neldon got into just 2 days before this happened when neldon threatened to kill Nathan- who stopped him--Judy--- I love you Judy-you are always in our prayers and in our hearts.

Being related to Neldon I grew up being told over and over to never be around him etc etc and I didnt listen and actually lived with him for a couple months before I went to basic training. I had the opportunity to meet both Judy and you Marsha at the home in Edgar springs and the trailer at roby, and the "farm" outside of edgar springs. By the time I got smart and got out of Neldons i realized just what a monster he is...however there are two sides to every story..your mother wasn't the angel you made her out to be. she did dope and on more than one occasion with me there she would curse him and tell her she was going to leave...i think Neldon didn't flip out because I was there and i wonder if the murder could have been prevented had i been there when it occured. it was a tragic thing but she is in a better place now. Neldon has done a lot of stuff that believe it or not was "worse than murder," one of my cousins mother went thru hell when she was with Neldon...for that reason she has to live with that horror the rest of her life..God rest judy's soul she is n heaven and suffers no more. marsha I hope you are doing ok and you find peace.
