Earlier on Monday, Louisville Metro Police announced the arrest of Anthony L. Hogan Jr., 18, in connection with Holt's death on April 11.
Both Hogan and Mallery were arrested early Monday morning. Hogan was arrested by St. Matthews Police in the 7600 block of Shelbyville Road on charges unrelated to Holt's murder. It is unclear where Mallery was arrested.
According to an arrest report, after he was read his Miranda rights, Hogan told detectives that he and two other people went to the apartment where Holt lived with his mother in the 1600 block of Clover Street. Hogan said they forced their way into the apartment and shot Holt several times.
Both Hogan and Mallery are being held at Louisville Metro Corrections on murder and burglary charges. They are expected to be arraigned Tuesday morning.
"We don't have to walk around wondering who it is, where they are," Holt's aunt, Brenda Simpson, told WAVE 3 News. "I think it's a big burden lifted up off the family. I want them to do the time for the crime. I want them to pay for the mistake that was made."
The family was preparing for Holt's visitation and funeral on Tuesday.
"I pray for all of my family and ask God to keep them surrounded," Simpson said. "But tonight I'm going to pray more for the young men and their families."
"It'll be a whole lot smoother tomorrow because we don't have to look over our shoulders. We don't have to wonder if they're sitting in with our family at the funeral. We don't have to wonder if they're going to bust through that door. We don't have to wonder about that," she said.
