HARDIN COUNTY, Tenn. (WKRN) – A trial date was set Tuesday for Dylan Adams, one of the three defendants in the disappearance and murder of Holly Bobo.
Adams is expected to go on trial May 29, 2018, the day after Memorial Day.
A short status hearing was held Tuesday afternoon in Hardin County in the same courtroom where Zach Adams was convicted in the case in late September.
Judge Creed McGinley said he is likely to bring in a jury pool from Chattanooga. Once the jurors are selected, they will be sequestered for the trial.
The judge also said prosecutors decided not to seek the death penalty or life without the possibility of parole.
Another hearing for Adams is now set for Dec. 14.
Dylan Adams, his brother Zach, and Jason Autry are all accused in the high-profile case involving the then 20-year-old nursing student who disappeared from her West Tennessee home in 2011.
Autry, who testified against defendant Zach Adams in September, has already reached a plea deal, while Zach Adams was found guilty of murdering Bobo and faces life in prison. He has since filed a motion for a new trial.
