American missionary accused of being a spy is held in Venezuela
A judge ruled that 24-year-old Josh Holt, a missionary from Utah, will remain in a Venezuelan jail until a hearing in September. The country’s government is calling Holt a well-armed spy, but Holt’s mother said there is “zero” chance that the weapons allegedly found where he was staying belong to her son. Holt reportedly traveled to the South American country to marry a fellow Mormon he met online. NBC’s Janet Shamlian reports for TODAY.
