Holley, a 39-year-old mother of four, died Dec. 23 after she was removed from life support at Shock Trauma, a week after she was shot multiple times in Baltimore’s Curtis Bay neighborhood.
Two men—31-year-old Elliot Knox and 32-year-old Travon Shaw—were arrested the next day after police linked them to the shooting based on surveillance video.
