His body was found at the location under a pile of blankets a day later by police, who arrived at the property on an unrelated matter. He was tied up, his mouth was taped and his pants were pulled down to his upper thighs. In March, a jury convicted Holland of one count of rape but found him not guilty of manslaughter.
Judge Christopher Beale described Holland’s offense as premeditated and particularly humiliating. “The rape of Mr. Cox was an act of callous, degrading and humiliating retribution,” Judge Beale said. Holland’s mental disability, time in prison during the pandemic and the separation of his three young children were taken into account for the sentence.
