After 7 years of delays, there is finally closure for the family of slain Glendale Police Officer Anthony Holly.

The man who shot and killed him was sentenced to death. Bryan Hulsey fired several attorneys in order to delay his trial, and he was again defiant in court as the verdict was read.

Holly's family said they walked out of court without any sense of happiness. They say they will never feel happy, but what they do feel today is relief.

The family of murdered Glendale Police Officer Anthony Holly have a verdict in the case.

The defendant, Bryan Hulsey was sentenced to death for the traffic stop shooting that left Holly dead.

"We feel a sense of relief that Tony's killer will never see a free day, and will never hurt anyone again," said Nancy Bonner.

"Relief because this trial is behind us because it is no longer hanging over our head," said Bernie Holly.

Hulsey's attorneys argued Holly died from the friendly fire of another office present. Hulsey's family maintains their son is innocent.

"It's not justice, it's not the truth coming out," said BJ Hulsey.

"In this trial, there was no evidence at all, and it was reasonable doubt left and right and that jury had their minds made up from the moment they went in there," said Rondyl Hulsey.

One family's quest for justice now over, but the loss of the 24-year-old Glendale Police Officer will be with them forever.

"As significant a conclusion of this trial is, and how just the verdict and sentence are, it does not begin to touch the pain for what was taken February 19th, 2007," said Glendale Police Chief Debora Black.

"Our wonderful Tony is not coming home, this court trial does not change that, we all continue to miss Tony with every breath," said Bonner.

Hulsey has 20 days to appeal the verdict; the judge said Hulsey will die by lethal injection.
