Crime Tracker

DECATUR COUNTY, Tenn. (WKRN) — The man convicted of murdering a Tennessee nursing student had his appeal for a new trial denied by a judge.

Zach Adams was sentenced in 2017 to life in prison for the murder of Holly Bobo. She disappeared in 2011 from her home in Decatur County and her remains were found three years later.

Adams had filed an appeal for a new trial in the case, but a judge chose to overrule it in a Hardin County courtroom Tuesday morning.


Adams’ brother, Dylan pleaded guilty in 2018 to a lesser charge of facilitation of murder. A third suspect, Jason Autry has not gone to trial in the case.
