BOSSIER PARISH, LA (KSLA) - A Bossier Parish man who was found guilty of trying to detonate a bomb under his former boss' bed will spend 105 years in prison.
Douglas Holley was found guilty earlier this year of two counts of attempted first-degree murder, two counts of manufacturing and/or possessing a bomb and one county of aggravated arson. Holley was sentenced Tuesday.
Holley represented himself during the trial after discharging his court-appointed attorney. The trial was postponed when Holley filed motions seeking to have all Bossier Parish judges recused from his case.
In July of this year, he turned down a plea deal that would have sent him to prison for 40 years.
Veterinarian Robert Hewlett and his wife Tracy Hewlett and their two dogs were not harmed in the explosion. The bombs were placed under the pier and beam home.
Holley lived on the farm at one point at time, and worked for the Hewletts.
It was said that Holley blamed Robert Hewlett for the death of his horse.
