Baldwin Deputy's Convicted Killer Denied Appeal

The man found guilty of killing a Baldwin County Sheriff's Deputy in 1995 could be put to death as soon as next summer, according to Ocmulgee Judicial Circuit District Attorney Fred Bright.

He says Robert Wayne Holsey was found guilty in 1997 of shooting and killing Deputy Will Robinson.

The most recent hearing went before the U.S. 11th District Court of Appeals, Bright says, where the judges denied his appeal.

Bright says the decision came down on Sept 13.

He says Holsey has 21 days to file for a rehearing. If he loses that, Bright says he then can file for an extension to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Bright called this the biggest case out of Baldwin County in the 18 years he's been the District Attorney.

Trouble With the Critics for New Eastwood Film

In baseball, even the best players only get a hit three out of every 10 at bats. By that standard, Clint Eastwood is doing OK. But by Hollywood standards, it may not be enough. 

"Trouble With the Curve," which opens nationwide Friday and was filmed partially in Macon, is having trouble with film critics. 

The movie stars Eastwood as Gus, a widowed and aging (but legendary) baseball scout for the Atlanta Braves. 

Amy Adams plays his daughter Mickey, and Justin Timberlake is her love interest. John Goodman portrays Gus' friend Pete, and Matthew Lillard, a guy best known as Shaggy in the live-action "Scooby-Doo" movies, is an executive who wants Gus gone.
