Dispute over murdered teen’s burial has been resolved

By Alana Cerrone


The battle over where to bury a Providence teen who was murdered last month is over.

17-year-old George Holland's mother, who is serving time in prison, and his aunt, who is his legal guardian, couldn't agree on whether to cremate or bury him.

The sisters have now settled on burying him next to his father, where another plot for his mom will be reserved should she choose to be there.

Holland was shot and killed through a window on Colfax Street last month.

Five people have been charged in the crime.
