NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – It was decided during a status hearing Wednesday morning that the ongoing Holly Bobo case is expected to go to trial next April.

The date is set for April 3, 2017, nearly six years after the 20-year-old college student went missing from her Parsons, Tenn. home.

Her remains were found in Sept. 2014 in a rural area of Decatur County, about 100 miles west of Nashville.

“We knew it was going to take some time to get the justice system ready for the trial, but at least we got a date. A target date set now by the judge,” Bobo family spokesman Pastor Don Franks said.

He added that the family is committed to having justice for Holly no matter how long it takes.

Three men, Zachary Adams, his brother Dylan Adams and Jason Autry, have all been charged in the case.

Both Dylan Adams and Jason Autry appeared in court Wednesday for the status hearing where the trial date was set.

The death penalty is being sought against all three men charged in the case.

They have all entered pleas of not guilty.
