Mary Ann Holder's Boyfriend Talks About Shooting Rampage

PLEASANT GARDEN, N.C. (WGHP) — The boyfriend of Mary Ann Holder, who is suspected of fatally shooting her two sons and three other children before killing herself last month in Pleasant Garden, spoke with FOX8's Mitch Carr on Monday.

David Stokes said he spent time with Holder almost every day since February and that he knew the alienation of affection lawsuit weighed heavily on Holder's mind. However, Stokes said he doubts it was enough to spark the shooting spree.

Stokes said he witnessed Holder trying to distance herself from Randall Lamb, a married man with whom Holder previously had an affair, but that Lamb would not leave her alone.
