Neal Bolden was indicted on May 2nd and arrested on May 9th.

According to Chesapeake Police, Bolden was transferred to Chesapeake jail from Norfolk jail.

Court records show he was also arrested for robbery, credit card theft and credit card fraud.

Holloway's father told News 3, his family is happy there was an arrest and it brings some closure, however, they still have a long road ahead.

Holloway was reported missing from her Norfolk home back in October 2015. After about a week, her body was found in a car in Chesapeake.

In November of 2015, police arrested Bolden on charges of having a gun as a convicted felon.

Holloway's family told News 3 at the time that Bolden was Holloway's boyfriend.

Court records obtained by News 3 showed that Bolden was violent with Holloway in the past.

In May of 2015, he admitted to assaulting her. He was also accused of strangling her and damaging her property in the same incident, but those charges were later dropped.

He was sentenced to just one month in jail and served the time on the weekends.

Bolden was ordered to have no hostile contact with Holloway.

He is scheduled to go to trial for his new charges on July 6th.
