Nathan Holden found guilty of murdering in-laws

Nathan Holden’s attorney told the Wake County jury at the beginning of the trial that he shot Latonya Holden’s parents, Sylvester and Angelia Taylor, and beat and shot her at the Taylors home on April 9, 2014. But the attorney said Holden had not planned to commit the crimes in advance and therefore could not be guilty of first-degree murder. He was convicted of first-degree murder anyway, because the shooting deaths were committed in during the course of another felony.
