BENTON, Louisiana — A state judge has ruled a Bossier City man freely and voluntarily made a statement about the stabbing death of his mother and, thus, that statement is admissible in his upcoming trial.
The Times reports (http://bit.ly/XHkVuT ) 23-year-old Christopher Wayne Holder is scheduled for trial Monday on a charge of second-degree murder. He is accused of killing Dr. Donna Holder in November 2011 at their home in north Bossier City.
Christopher Holder's attorney Rick Fayard attempted to have his client's statement thrown out through a motion to suppress. Fayard also wanted to waive a jury trial and opt for a bench decision.
District Judge Mike Nerren denied both motions. Christopher Holder has pleaded not guilty and not guilty by reason of insanity.
