    Judge sets tentative date for 2nd trial in student's death

    A judge set a tentative trial date Tuesday for a man charged with kidnapping, raping and killing a Tennessee nursing student who disappeared from her rural home more than six years ago.

    Judge C. Creed McGinley said he plans to hold the trial of John Dylan Adams during the last week of May 2018.

    The judge said he was setting a tentative trial date for the "day after Memorial Day," which is May 29. Jury selection would be held the week before, and the panel will be sequestered, the judge said.

    John Dylan Adams is the younger brother of Zachary Adams, who was convicted of Bobo's kidnapping, rape and murder on Sept. 22 and was sentenced the next day to life in prison without parole plus 50 years. Zachary Adams avoided a possible death sentence when he reached a deal with prosecutors minutes before his sentencing hearing was to begin.

    This killer needs to take a plea deal.

    I pulled a version of this article off the AP Wire for our paper today. He needs to follow in his big brother's footsteps and plead out for the sake of Holly's family, but it won't happen. He's gonna roll the dice and bet on his, "too low IQ to understand murder or make his own decisions" defense and hoping for a lack of evidence acquittal on the murder charge since no one has said he physically killed her. He's just as selfish as his brother and his mom. Pardon my brashness, but they are nothing but TRASH. Ugh.

    Dylan Adams won’t face death penalty in Holly Bobo case; trial set for May

    John Dylan Adams, one of the defendants accused of kidnapping, raping and murdering nursing student Holly Bobo, will not face the death penalty when he returns for his trial next year.

    Adams was in court for a status hearing Tuesday and Judge C. Creed McGinley tentatively set a trial date for May 29. His next hearing is set for 10 a.m. Dec. 14.

    With the state taking the death penalty off the table, Adams faces a life sentence of 51 years if convicted.

    The judge said he’ll be setting a cut-off date soon for when both sides could reach a plea agreement instead of going to trial.

    Holly Bobo judge extends plea deal deadline for Dylan Adams

    Judge C. Creed McGinley has extended the deadline he set Thursday for the prosecution and defense to come to a plea agreement for John Dylan Adams, one of three men charged in the kidnapping, rape and killing of 20-year-old nursing student Holly Bobo.

    Opposing counsel now have until Monday morning to reach an agreement.

    “I’m not asking anybody to compromise on their different positions, but I’m asking you to … everybody knows what they’re willing to do, or I think they do.”

    Also known as a best interest plea, it allows Adams to maintain his innocence while acknowledging the evidence against him would likely lead to a conviction. He will serve 35 years in jail for facilitation of first-degree murder and especially aggravated kidnapping. Adams’ attorney asked the judge to take previous time served into consideration.

    The attorney also told the Bobo family that as far as he knew, Clint Bobo was not involved in any way in the case.

    Judge C. Creed McGinley gave prosecutors and lawyers for Adams until Monday to reach an agreement that would let him avoid trial and up to 51 years behind bars. He was scheduled to appear early Monday morning, but the attorneys quickly asked for a recess to continue their negotiations.


    What's his story? Why should he only get 35 years???????????? :mad:

    I wonder about the prosecutors involved in this decision. The judge that Jennifer Nichols is replacing retired in Dec, so likely she assumed his duties this month. Would another prosecutor be assigned to replace her on the Holly Bobo case; if so, wouldn't a new prosecutor need more time to review the case before making any decisions like a plea deal? This is why I wondered how Nichols' judicial appointment would affect the Holly Bobo case.

    This better not include the possibility of parole.

    It doesn't, but they are computing time served. So that will come off.

    Holly Bobo laid to rest nearly 7 years after her murder

    In a small private service Friday Holly Bobo was finally laid to rest.

    Karen Bobo, Holly’s mom, tells News 2 her daughter’s remains were interred just before dusk in a local family cemetery.

    It has been nearly 7 years since the 20 year old nursing student disappeared from her home in Parsons in April 2011.

    Justice is near 7 years after Holly Bobo disappears

    It’s been a slow and long journey since she disappeared, and it’s not over yet.

    The case began when Holly Bobo disappeared from her home on the morning of April 13.

    Almost three years later investigators made an arrest.

    In February 2014, Zach Adams was charged with kidnapping and first degree murder.

    Two months later, Jason Autry, who became a key witness for the state, was arrested on the same charges.

    Definitive proof that Holly Bobo had died came on Sept. 7, 2014 when a man looking for ginseng found her skull and some of her bones in the woods.

    Two weeks after that Dylan Adams, Zach Adams’ brother, was also arrested.

    After man twists and turns, the Bobo family and the Decatur County community are one step closer to justice.

    After a trial in September 2017, Zach Adams was convicted and sentenced to life in prison.

    Shortly after that, Dylan Adams took a plea deal and is looking at serving 35 years in prison.

    As for Jason Autry, he’s still awaiting trial, or as some legal experts think, may be waiting on a plea deal to be finalized.
