The man who killed a Glendale Police Officer Anthony Holly during a 2007 traffic stop was sentenced to death Thursday, and the slain officer’s mother spoke out about what the trial’s conclusion means to her and her family.
“We certainly feel a sense of relief to have this trial done,” Nancy Bonner, Holly’s mother, told KTAR News’ Mac and Gaydos on Friday. “It needed to be done, and it’s been much, much, much too long.”
The death sentence for Bryan Wayne Hulsey, 40, came almost exactly one month after he a jury found him guilty of first-degree murder.
Holly’s mother said Hulsey’s sentence was not a cause of celebration.
“There’s no feeling of happiness for anybody on either side of this — certainly for his family, who we have compassion for, and certainly not for any of us,” Bonner said.
