Jury Hears Testimony From Zachary Holly’s Family in Day 4 of Murder Trial

BENTON COUNTY, AR — Jurors heard testimony from members of Zachary Holly’s family Thursday after finding him guilty of Residential Burglary, Kidnapping, Rape and Capital Murder in the death of Jersey Bridgeman.

The defense called 10 witnesses to the stand, on Holly’s behalf, during this punishment phase.

The defense said Holly lived in 39 different homes between 1984-2002 and changed/moved schools 23 times. The defense says DHS was contacted 16 times regarding neglect or abuse of Holly, but he was never removed from the home.

Three of Holly’s former educators testified, all saying they never met any of his family members.

Holly’s oldest brother Kenny also testified Thursday. 

Court is in recess until Friday morning, which will be the third day of the punishment phase.
