Louie Holloway, age 26, was convicted on February 13 after a jury trial before United States District Judge Samuel H. Mays, Jr. on charges involving the September 8, 2002, attempted robbery and shotgun murder of Pizza Hut deliveryman John Stambaugh in the Cooper-Young neighborhood.

Stambaugh was memorialized by dozens of stencil-art portraits in Cooper-Young, many of which still remain.

Holloway was convicted of attempted robbery affecting commerce, carrying a firearm during a crime of violence, and being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Holloway is set to be sentenced on May 21, 2008 at 1:30 p.m. He faces up to life in prison.
