Couple thrown off bed by bomb at horse farm
BENTON - A law enforcement official says the owners of a Louisiana horse farm were sent flying from their bed to the floor by a bomb in the crawl space, but they walked away uninjured.
Bossier Parish sheriff's spokesman Bill Davis said Monday that deputies have arrested a maintenance worker, 54-year-old Douglas Holley. Davis says one farm owner is a veterinarian and had been unable to help Holley's horse earlier this year. Davis says that's the only problem the owners recall with Holley. He had worked and lived at Holly Hill Farm Equestrian Center for about four years.
Holley's been arrested on charges of attempted capital murder and making a bomb.
The bomb went off about 4 a.m. Saturday. Davis says it left a basketball-sized hole in the floor and a hole in the bottom of the mattress.
