Prosecution Rests In Holland Murder Trial 

The prosecution has rested their case in the murder trial of Rory Holland. The 56-year-old Biddeford man is on trial for fatally shooting two young men outside his home.Holland has admitted that last June he fatally shot 19-year-old Gage Greene and his 21-year-old brother, Derek, outside his home but he says he shot the brothers in self defense.The defense began calling witnesses this afternoon. They’re focusing on a fight between Rory Holland and Derek Greene that occurred about a month before the shooting after greene accused Holland of groping him.Greene was arrested as a result of that fight and charged with assault. Greene was ordered to stay 500 feet away from Holland and his property.Witnesses have testified that the tension between Holland and the Greene brothers had been building for quite some time before the shooting. Some people in Biddeford say Holland was known around town for pushing people’s buttons simply to get a reaction from them.Some folks who know Holland could be charming and compassionate one day, and antagonistic and confrontational the next, but they also say many people were scared of him, fearful that his unpredictable behavior might turn violent.There’s no word yet on whether Rory Holland will take the stand in his own defense.The trial continues Tuesday.
