LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

A day after they found him guilty, an Angelina County jury sentenced a Lufkin man to 20 years in a Texas Department of Criminal Justice prison Friday for breaking into a woman’s home and stealing her money in September of 2014.

During the second day of the jury trial for Kentavian Holman, 20, a Lufkin Police Department detective took the stand.

Holman is charged with first-degree aggravated robbery.

According to police reports, Holman walked into the front door of the Hackney Street home of Peggy Beddingfield and demanded her money by threatening her with a knife and throwing her walker across the room. He took $40 in cash and coins and ran from the home. A witness recognized Holman and saw him drop his knife.

Detective Jarod Hennigan with the Lufkin Police Department testified that he helped with getting the arrest and search warrants. He told the jury that, based on Hughes’ statement and what Beddington said, they had enough to make an arrest in the case.

Hennigan said the search warrant was for Holman’s home on Sunset Boulevard.
