Man pleads guilty to murdering girlfriend in 2015

CHESAPEAKE, Va. (WVEC) -- A man charged in connection with the death of his girlfriend in 2015 pleaded guilty to second-degree murder.

Jequil Holloway was last seen alive October 2015. Police reported her missing on Oct. 30. and they found her body in the trunk of her car near the Chesapeake/Norfolk border on Nov. 1.

Court documents showed Holloway was going to see her boyfriend, Neal Bolden on Oct. 27, 2015. 

When Bolden was interviewed by police, he told them the last time he saw Holloway was on Oct. 26 and that he only spoke with her by phone the next day. 

Six months before Holloway disappeared Bolden was charged with felony strangulation, destruction of property and assault and battery against Holloway. Court documents stated he threatened to kill her during that incident. 

He was sentenced to 30 days in jail and was supposed to serve the time on the weekends, but did not show up to one weekend in July. A judge ordered Bolden to not have any hostile contact with his girlfriend and ordered him to attend anger management classes by Dec. 18, 2015.

Bolden was arrested for being a convicted felon in possession of a weapon the morning after police found Holloway.

He was later arrested and charged with her murder.  

Bolden entered an Alford plea, which means he admitted the prosecution possessed enough evidence to convict him.

His sentencing is set for March 16, 2018.

The other charges Bolden was facing were nol prossed.
