Judith Elaine Walthers (born May 26, 1993), also known as Judy Walthers, is an American murderer. She was arrested for killing 54-year-old Kevin Worzalla in late January 2014. Her motive and her relationship Worzalla currently remains unclear. However, after beating Worzalla to death with a crescent wrench, Walthers stole his stereo and his rare coin collection, then drove around town in Worzalla's truck for one week before being apprehended by Mesa, Arizona police officers. She is currently in prison awaiting trial.[1]

Early life

According to her appearance on The Maury Povich Show in 2011, Judy was born as Judith Elaine Walthers on May 26, 1993, in Phoenix, Arizona. She worked as a waitress at Hooters to support her daughter, whom she had at a young age.[2] Despite holding a regular job, Judy took pills and avoided taking care of her daughter, preferring to go to nightclubs on school nights. She was living in Mesa, Arizona, at the time of her arrest.


Walthers appeared as Autumn in the 2012 pornographic film, Cuz Plan B is Her Plan A. The film was produced by Backroom Casting Couch, a pornography company that does audition tapes for aspiring adult entertainers. The thirty-five minute long video garnered millions of views on the adult film website Porn Hub.

Walthers also has a YouTube channel under the username judy walthers, in which she has posted one video (possibly from a cellphone due to the video being untitled) where she does a freestyle rap.[3] On another YouTube channel, Walthers is also seen in a video rapping a verse to a song by rapper Tyga.[4]

In 2011, Judy appeared as herself on an episode of The Maury Povich Show entitled, Bad Teen Moms... Caught and Confronted.[5]


Judy pled not guilty to murder and other charges in February 2014. She was booked on the charge of first-degree murder for the death of Kevin Worzalla. The investigation began on February 4 when Worzalla's family reported him missing and requested police to stop by his apartment. Officers found Worzalla dead inside with signs of trauma. Worzalla's vehicle and other items of property were missing from the residence. Detectives said they learned that Walthers had been staying with the victim for several days before the discovery of his body. She had also been seen driving the victim's vehicle.

She was eventually located and charged with crimes related to the stolen vehicle. When she was arrested for the stolen vehicle, she did not admit any involvement in Worzalla's death. Evidence from the crime scene was located and submitted to the crime lab for analysis. The analysis showed that Walthers' DNA was present on bloody items located inside the crime scene. Police said there was also evidence to support that Judy had made attempts to clean the crime scene and wash bloody items. She was also charged with first-degree burglary, trafficking in stolen property, tampering with physical evidence, and theft of means of transportation.[6][7]
