Adolphus Hollingsworth Sentenced for Killing His Wife 18 Years Ago
The fatal stabbing happened in August of 1997.
Carr’s body was found two-years later — but her husband wasn’t convicted of the murder until last year.
A cold case investigation led by district attorney Neal Pinkston generated new leads in the case.
The victim’s brother, Kennith Whiterspoon, told us after the hearing "Today we got closure. I just hate that my parents weren’t hear to see it. Either way twenty two years, that’s a long time. I just wish him good luck."
Hollingsworth’s defense team plans to file a motion for a new trial.
He’s due back in court June 1st.
