Farmhand gets 105 years for bombing bosses' bed
BENTON (AP) - A northwest Louisiana farmhand has been sentenced to 105 years in prison for trying to kill his bosses by putting a bomb in a crawl space under their bed because the husband hadn't saved his horse.
News outlets report that Bossier Parish Judge Parker Self told 56-year-old Douglas Holley, "I'm going to remove you from normal society."
Holley was convicted in August on two counts of attempted first-degree murder, two counts of making or possessing a bomb and one of aggravated arson.
Neither Holley nor horse farm owners Robert and Tracy Hewlett made a statement at Tuesday's sentencing.
Tracy Hewlett told The Associated Press in December 2015 that they, their three small dogs and a cat all escaped unharmed. She said, "We think it was our Christmas miracle."
