DECATUR COUNTY, Tenn. -- Zach Adams will go on trial for the murder of Holly Bobo next April, prosecutors announced today.
Adams' trial is set for April 3, 2017.
A judge made the announcement in a pre-trial hearing in Decatur County.
However, the trial will be held in Hardin County to have a better chance at an objective jury pool, according to officials.
"This has been a long time. By the time the first trial starts it will be six years since Holly went missing. It’s changed our way of thinking in this county. We're still all looking for justice and we won't back down," Bobo family friend Tammy Ramey said.
Jason Autry and Dylan Adams are also suspected in the case.
Another trial is set for July 10, but prosecutors didn't say who would be tried then.
Prosecutors also wouldn't comment on whether the co-defendants would testify in Zach Adams' trial.
“I can’t comment on the facts or what the truth is going to be. That wouldn’t be fair to anybody,” said special prosecutor Paul Hagerman, an assistant district attorney in Shelby County.
Bobo was last seen April 13, 2011 at her home in Decatur County.
The TBI identified her remains September 8, 2015.
”Time never helps when you’re trying to prove a case. Time never helps when a family waiting for justice. The five or six years has been hard for everybody and it'll be an obstacle we’ll face during trial," Hagerman said.
