James Harold “Jamie” Baldwin of York, a former York Police Department patrol officer, was indicted by a grand jury in Chester yesterday after an investigation that went on for more than a year and-a-half after the death of Judy Baldwin.

Baldwin claimed that his wife was injured in a fall while putting up Christmas ornaments on Dec. 14, 2016, he then told police the couple were in a car crash on the way to the hospital.

Police from the highway patrol major accident investigation team and State Law Enforcement Division agents investigated the case. The coroner in Chester County ruled that Judy Baldwin died from “blunt force trauma.”

After the grand jury returned the indictment against Baldwin, Chester County Sheriff’s Office deputies arrested Baldwin. He was booked into the Chester County jail where he is being held without bond on the murder charge.
