A capital murder suspect accused of shooting a Gulfport teenager then fleeing to New Mexico appeared in court this morning.

He spent a year behind bars in New Mexico and was brought back to Mississippi in 2016.

This morning in a Harrison County courtroom, Holloway pleaded guilty to that capital murder charge in exchange for a life sentence.

Holloway will carry out that sentence at the Mississippi State Penitentiary and has no chance at the possibility of parole, probation, or early release.
