A jury has begun deliberating in the case of a man charged with kidnapping, raping and killing a Tennessee nursing student.
A 12-person jury in Savannah, Tennessee, began weighing evidence in the trial of Zachary Adams at about 3:20 p.m. Thursday. Adams is charged with the abduction, rape and slaying of Holly Bobo, who was 20 when she disappeared from her home in rural Parsons in 2011.
Two ginseng hunters found Bobo's remains 3 ½ years ago in woods in Decatur County, about 100 miles (160 kilometers) southwest of Nashville. The 33-year-old Adams faces the death penalty if convicted of first-degree murder.
Bobo's disappearance sparked a massive search and the case received national attention. The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has said the investigation was the most exhaustive and expensive in the agency's history.
