BENTONVILLE (KFSM)- A jury that will decide whether to put child killer Zachary Holly to death will resume deliberations Wednesday (May 27) morning.

The jury deliberated for more than four hours Tuesday (May 26) between the death sentence and life in prison without parole after finding Holly guilty of capital murder in the 2012 murder of six-year-old Jersey Bridgeman of Bentonville.

The jury took a break for the Memorial Day holiday on Monday (May 25,) and returned to the Benton County Circuit Courtroom Tuesday.

In order to receive the death penalty, the jury will have to be unanimous in their decision. If they can’t agree, Holly will get a sentence of life in prison without parole.

When the jury was selected, all jurors said they would be open to sentencing Holly to death.
