Elder Abuse: Man Accused of Stomping Mother to Face Superior Court (GA. USA)

Man accused of stomping mother on his way to trial in superior court

A man accused of stomping his mother and leaving her on the floor of her home with a broken foot and ankle will face a superior court judge for his alleged crime.

 When James Douglas Holland, 49, appeared Monday morning in Hall County Magistrate Court, Magistrate Judge Tracy Loggins bound his case over to Superior Court.

 The decision pleased Holland’s sister, Eloise Holland, who said her brother has been violent toward their mother on more than one occasion.

 "I’m glad, because he needs to stop doing her like this," Eloise Holland told The Times after the hearing.

 Holland is accused of stomping his 68-year-old mother while wearing work boots, then leaving her lying with a broken foot and ankle on the floor of her Gainesville home for two days without food or water. Bertha Holland was found helpless in her East Drive home by two of her daughters on Dec. 16.

Times reporter Stephen Gurr contributed to this report.
