Trial dates set for trio charged in high-profile killing of Tenn. nursing student

PARSONS, Tenn. (WKRN) – A judge decided on court dates Tuesday for the three men accused in the high-profile Holly Bobo case.


As it stands, the judge has not yet decided if suspects Zachary Adams and Dylan Adams will be tried together or separately. The men for now are slated to go to trial April 3.

The third suspect in the case, Jason Autry, will go to trial three months later on July 10.

WKRN spoke with family friend Tammy Ramey after the hearing on Tuesday. She said she hopes to move forward and get justice for Holly.

“We’re looking forward to April 3. We’re getting stronger. We’re not getting weaker,” Ramey said. “We’re here for justice and we will fight until the very end.”

“We have children in school that weren’t even born when this happened, and in a way it seems like forever, and in a way it seems like it just happened yesterday,” she added.

All three men are each charged with raping and killing the then 21-year-old nursing student in April 2011.

Bobo’s remains were found more than three years after her disappearance in 2014 by two farmers in Holladay, Tennessee, which is about 90 miles west of Nashville.

Two men looking for ginseng in rural Decatur County discovered a human skull and other remains on Sept. 7, 2014.

An 8-count indictment from May, 2015 charges all three men with three counts of first-degree murder, two counts of especially aggravated kidnapping, and three counts of aggravated rape.

According to the indictments, counts one and three of first degree murder are associated with the kidnapping of Bobo, and count two of murder is associated with the premeditated murder of Bobo.
