Mother Guilty of First Degree Murder

A jury in Lansing, Michigan has found a woman guilty of first-degree felony murder of her adopted son. Lisa Holland was also found guilty of serious abuse in the death last year (01JUL05) of seven-year-old Ricky. Holland initially claimed that Ricky had run away, initiating nine days of searching by hundreds of law enforcement officers and 1,700 volunteers. But she was caught when husband Tim Holland showed police where he dumped his son's remains. He also testified that his wife had admitted killing Ricky, and pleaded guilty to second-degree murder. The Holland's adopted Ricky in 2003, a year after his biological parents' rights were terminated as a result of neglect.
