Murder Conviction Upheld
(2008-06-25)
(wgvu) - LANSING, Mich. (AP) - The Michigan Court of Appeals has upheld
the murder conviction of a Williamston woman who was found guilty
of killing her adopted 7-year-old son.
Lisa Holland says her 2006 trial in Ingham County should have
been moved because media publicity deprived her of a fair trial.
The 36-year-old also says evidence of Ricky Holland's cause of
death and prior abuse against him shouldn't have been heard by
jurors.
The appeals court disagreed in a unanimous ruling released
Wednesday.
Lisa Holland is serving life without parole for the boy's 2005
death. Her husband is serving between 30 and 60 years after
pleading guilty to second-degree murder.
Tim Holland testified his wife struck Ricky with a hammer and
had abused the boy by restraining him with ropes and not feeding
him.
