BOSSIER CITY, LA (KSLA) -

A Bossier City man accused in the brutal stabbing death of his mother has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity.

21-year-old Chris Holder was arrested on a charge of second degree murder for stabbing 55-year-old Donna Holder inside their home in the 100 block of Stonebridge Blvd. on the night of November 18, 2011.

According to Bossier City spokesperson Mark Natale, Christopher Holder called police to the scene at approximately 7:15 p.m. and stated that his mother had been stabbed by an unknown assailant who had entered their home in the gated North Bossier community.

Police and fire department personnel arrived to find Donna Holder dead inside the home.

Multiple sources confirm that Chris Holder has a history of mental problems, and had been committed at least twice before.  They also say police had been called out to the home on previous occasions.

Still, Holder was found competent to stand trial in April 2013 and set an arraignment date for May 14.

According to court documents, Chris Holder pleaded not guilty and not guilty by reason of insanity in a Bossier Parish courtroom this week.

A status conference is set for July 2. Dr. Donna Holder practiced pain medicine and anesthesiology at LSU Health in Shreveport.
