EVANSVILLE — Family and friends said the death of former Vanderburgh County Superior Court Judge J. Douglas Knight at an Evansville hospital Monday was unexpected.

Knight, 68, died from a sudden hemorrhagic stroke, said Emily Friend, his youngest daughter. He retired from the bench in December 2010 after more than two decades on the court. However, he remained active as a senior judge, helping hear cases as needed, said fellow Senior Judge Maurice O’Conner.
