Fifty-seven-year-old Bradley Stinson admitted to having an affair and killing his lover in December 2012. According to Stinson, his affair lasted three years and ended when he had repeated arguments with Tracey Holloway, 51. On Dec. 9, Stinson was sent off to jail by Judge Ralph Simmonds.
Apparently Stinson had been romantically involved with Holloway for three years. He began to fear losing his wife and kids, his job and his house if word got out about his affair with Holloway. Things between them came to a head while Stinson’s wife was overseas. Holloway was staying at the Stinson house and they argued frequently. Stinson snapped and repeatedly bludgeoned Holloway with a club hammer causing head fractures and death. Stinson then stripped the body and took her to the Belmont racecourse where he worked, put her into a horse wash stall and hosed the body down.
Stinson claims he lost it with Holloway when she “racially insulted his wife and daughter.”
Judge Simmonds said that Holloway’s injuries were appalling. He sentenced Stinson to life with a 17-year minimum sentence for the bludgeoning murder.
