Memphis, TN – Chastain Montgomery, Sr., 50, of Lavergne, TN, was sentenced to consecutive life sentences in federal prison for the murders of United States Postal Service employees Paula Robinson and Judy Spray, announced Edward L. Stanton III, U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Tennessee; Thomas Noyes, Inspector in Charge of the Charlotte Division, United States Postal Inspection Service; and Mark Gwyn, Director of the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.
On May 22, 2014, Montgomery pled guilty to the seven count superseding indictment and avoided facing the death penalty for his crimes.
“The senseless and heinous murders of Paula Robinson and Judy Spray have left an irreplaceable void throughout the entire community,” said U.S. Attorney Edward Stanton. “I want to commend the tireless efforts of federal, state, and local law enforcement who assisted with the investigation and prosecution of this case. The life sentence without the possibility of parole imposed upon Chastain Montgomery, Sr. today will hopefully bring justice and a meaningful measure of closure to the Spray and the Robinson/Croom families.” Continue reading ‘Man Sentenced To Life In Prison For Murder Of Henning, TN Postal Workers’ »
