BENTONVILLE, Arkansas — A Bentonville man convicted of kidnapping, raping and killing a 6-year-old girl has been sentenced to death.

Thirty-year-old Zachary Holly was sentenced Wednesday to die by legal injection in the killing of Jersey Bridgeman in 2012.

A Benton County Circuit Court jury found Holly guilty last week of capital murder, kidnapping, rape and residential burglary.

Holly's execution date has been set for Nov. 16, 2016. A mandatory appeal will be filed.
