That person was an incapacitated adult and documents revealed the abuse resulted in serious bodily injury or disease to the victim. Holdren’s relation to the victim has not been confirmed at this time.

Investigators are still trying to nail down all the details of what happened behind the doors of a Henrico County family's home, but according to Henrico police, an outstanding warrant was served on Holdren.

The warrant was the result of an investigation into events from last summer in the 9400 block of Claymont Drive.

Holdren is due in General District Court on June 2 for a 9 a.m. hearing.
