GADSDEN, Ala. (AP) - A circuit judge in Gadsden has resentenced
former death row inmate Glenn Holladay to life in prison without
parole, as required under a federal court ruling.
Circuit Judge Allen Millican told the convicted triple-murderer
Friday that the new sentence is "death by incarceration" and that
the inmate will get to leave prison "in a pine box."
Holladay had been sentenced to death for the 1986 killing of his
ex-wife, Rebecca Ledbetter Holladay; her boyfriend, David Robinson;
and Larry Thomas Junior, a 16-year-old neighbor.
A federal judge ruled in 2006 that Holladay could not be executed because he is mentally retarded.
Holladay was shackled and under heavy guard as he appeared for
the resentencing hearing.
