A state appellate court has upheld the capital murder conviction and life sentence of a former postal worker.
James Holloman was found guilty of killing his father-in-law, wounding his mother-in-law and another man and kidnapping his estranged wife at gunpoint four years ago. The incident happened in Rehobeth.
Holloman entered his in-laws' home through a back door and opened fire with a shotgun.
He later released his wife unharmed.
Only two members of the jury that convicted Holloman voted for the death penalty and he was sentenced to life without parole.
Holloman’s appeal of the case now moves on to the State Supreme Court.
