COLORADO SPRINGS — A Fort Carson soldier who boasted about his transformation into a killer on his MySpace page has been formally charged with 19 felony counts, including first-degree murder.
Robert Hull Marko, 21, is being held in the El Paso County jail without bail in the slaying of 19-year-old Judilianna “Judi” Lawrence. The body of the developmentally disabled woman was found Oct. 13 on Old Stage Road, according to Colorado Bureau of Investigation records.
The charges filed Monday included felony murder, first-degree murder and five counts of sexual assault with force and with a weapon. He also was charged with sexual assault on a child and kidnapping, according to CBI records.
After a tour of duty that ended in February, Marko was earmarked for psychological counseling because of an “overactive imagination.” He was cleared for combat before he admitted to El Paso County sheriff’s investigators that he slashed Lawrence’s throat.
