Orange County allocates $1 million for special prosecutor in Holley murder trial

GOSHEN In order to pay for the services of a special prosecutor during Edward Holley’s murder trial—he is charged with killing Megan McDonald of the Town of Wallkill 20 years ago—Orange County has put aside $1 million.

County DA David Hoovler resigned because of a possible conflict of interest from his private practice, necessitating the appointment of a special district attorney.

The funds will be utilized, according to Chief Assistant DA Christopher Borek, to support the special prosecutor’s investigation, evidence presentation, and witness testimony.

They will incur higher costs should the matter proceed to trial. According to what I understand, the reason they are discussing with special prosecutors is that, due to the case’s age, they will need to pay for the costs associated with reuniting witnesses who have moved out of state, as well as expert testimony.

The young woman who was a part-time employee of a shopping mall and a college student was killed, but Holley has denied any involvement.
