Before the trial even started, Tim Holland cut a deal and plead to Murder Two in exchange for his testimony against his wife, Lisa for the murder of their seven year old adopted son Ricky.

At trial, witnesses for the prosecution described Ricky as neglected and underfed.

Two separate jail mates of Lisa's said she confessed to killing him with a hammer, which is how Tim said he was killed.

The defense didn't make it's case on witnesses, so much as damaging the credibility of the prosecution's witnesses.

Tim Holland admitted to lying on several different occasions. The defense specifically pointed out that he originally said Lisa killed Ricky with a tack hammer... then said she suffocated him with a pillow.

Closing arguments are expected on Wednesday. Then the jury will go into deliberations.
