    Holly Bobo: Judge sets January plea deal deadline

    By Omer Yusuf
    The Jackson Sun

    SAVANNAH — Judge C. Creed McGinley has again extended the deadline he set 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.

    The prosecution and defense had not come to an agreement when the Hardin County Court re-convened at 11 a.m. Monday morning. McGinley has now given opposing counsel until Jan. 22 to reach an agreement.

    McGinley said Monday morning if the prosecution and defense didn't have a negotiated plea by Jan. 22, the negotiated plea would come off the table and he would set deadlines for motions in the trial.

    Other possible options in this case are Adams pleading to the indictments after the Jan. 22 deadline or nolle prosequi (Latin for "we shall no longer prosecute," which is a declaration made to the judge by a prosecutor in a criminal case, meaning the case against the defendant would be dropped).

    At Adams' previous status hearing Thursday, McGinley said both sides had made substantial progress toward a negotiated plea agreement and extended the deadline until Monday morning. McGinley said Monday no progress had been made over the weekend between the parties.

    Don Franks, the Bobo family pastor and spokesman, said he will not comment on the case until it is resolved.

    Dylan Adams' defense attorney Matt Maddox said, "they are looking forward to proceeding on with the case" and did not comment when asked about the possiblity of taking a plea deal.

    Adams appeared for a status hearing Monday morning at the Hardin County Courthouse. The state previously filed a motion to no longer seek the death penalty or life without parole against Adams.

    Adams' trial is scheduled to begin in May.

    Inmate's Younger Brother Gets 35 Years in Holly Bobo Death

    Younger brother of man serving life in prison for kidnapping and killing Tennessee nursing student Holly Bobo pleads guilty in exchange for 35 years

    By Adrian Sainz
    Associated Press

    SAVANNAH, Tenn. (AP) The brother of a man serving life in prison for kidnapping, raping and killing Tennessee nursing student Holly Bobo pleaded guilty Monday in exchange for a 35-year sentence.

    John Dylan Adams entered an Alford plea, which means that he maintains his innocence, but acknowledges that prosecutors have enough evidence to convict him of especially aggravated kidnapping and facilitating first-degree murder. Judge C. Creed McGinley accepted the agreement, sparing the victim's family from having to "listen to the horrible details" at another trial.

    Bobo's mother, Karen, said she was prepared to endure it again, but is satisfied with Adams' guilty plea in the most exhaustive and expensive case in the history of the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.

    "For the sake of our family and just letting one more chapter be behind us, we decided we would go with this," she said.

    Bobo was 20 when she vanished from their home in rural Parsons, Tennessee, in April 2011, prompting a massive search of woods, fields and farms in west Tennessee. Her remains weren't found until more than three years later, in September 2014, by two ginseng hunters in woods not far from their home, about 100 miles (160 kilometers) southwest of Nashville.

    John Dylan Adams is the younger brother of Zachary Adams, who is seeking a new trial after being convicted and sentenced to life without parole plus 50 years in a last-minute deal in September that avoided the possibility of a death sentence.

    A TBI agent testified at Zachary Adams' trial that the agency made a mistake when it did not pursue leads only days after Bobo went missing that pointed to four men who lived in a dark underworld of crime and drug use: the Adams brothers and their friends Jason Autry and Shayne Austin.

    Investigators were unable to recover any DNA pointing to the four suspects, who ultimately would be accused based on witness statements.

    Autry, also charged with Bobo's kidnapping, rape and murder, testified in expectations of getting a lenient sentence and is on a list of witnesses who have been offered immunity. He said the elder Adams told him in graphic detail how he, his brother John and Austin raped Bobo. Autry also testified that he served as a lookout while Zachary Adams shot Bobo under a bridge spanning the Tennessee River. Austin committed suicide in Florida in February 2015.

    A fellow jail inmate, Shawn Cooper, testified that Zachary Adams told him he was involved in the "Holly Bobo murder case" and wanted him to deliver a message to his younger brother: Stay quiet, or he would "put him in a hole beside her." At the time, Cooper was about to be transferred to the same jail where John Dylan Adams was being held.

    Autry, meanwhile, testified that Zachary Adams asked him to kill his younger brother to silence him.

    Prosecutors have not publicly revealed the details of John Dylan Adams' involvement, but Shelby County Assistant District Attorney Paul Hagerman did say Monday that he had less involvement than his older brother.

    No hearing has been set to resolve Autry's charges, but his lawyer has told the judge that a trial does not need to be set, indicating that he has reached a deal with prosecutors.

    Tennessee convict pleads guilty in Holly Bobo murder case

    Associated Press

    SAVANNAH, Tenn. (AP) A convicted felon pleaded guilty Monday to taking part in the killing of Tennessee nursing student Holly Bobo more than nine years ago, but he is expected to be released soon as part of a deal with prosecutors

    Hardin County Judge C. Creed McGinley sentenced Jason Autry to eight years in prison after Autry pleaded guilty to solicitation to commit murder and facilitation of especially aggravated kidnapping. Autry gets credit for time served in the case and he could be released in the next few days, said his attorney, Michael Scholl.

    Autry provided key testimony in the 2017 trial of Zachary Adams, who was found guilty of murder, especially aggravated kidnapping and aggravated rape. Adams was sentenced to life in prison plus 50 years.


    Adams is appealing his conviction. His brother, John Dylan Adams, also reached a deal with prosecutors. He is serving 35 years in prison.


    Bobo was 20 when she vanished from their home in rural Parsons, Tennessee, in April 2011, prompting a massive search of woods, fields and farms in west Tennessee. Her remains were found more than three years later, in September 2014, by two ginseng hunters in woods not far from her home, about 100 miles (160 kilometers) southwest of Nashville.


    The case shook Parsons and the surrounding rural counties, as residents feared that Bobos killer or killers lived among them.


    Ahead of Zachary Adams trial, Autrys name showed up on a list of witnesses who could get immunity, and he said during questioning that he was testifying because he wanted leniency.


    Autry said Adams provided some graphic details when he told Autry that he along with his brother, John Dylan Adams, and Autrys cousin, Shayne Austin had raped Bobo. Austin was found dead in an apparent suicide in Florida in February 2015.


    Autry told jurors he had been locked up for theft and drug convictions three times before he was jailed in the Bobo case. He acknowledged an addiction to methamphetamine and morphine.


    Autry said hed known Zachary Adams for years. He said he called Adams on the day of Bobos disappearance to ask Adams for a morphine pill. When Adams called him back, he told Autry that he needed his help.


    Autry then went to Austins trailer, where Adams had driven with Bobo wrapped in a blanket in the back of his pickup truck, Autry said.


    Adams and Autry drove to a river and retrieved Bobos body from the truck, he said. Instead of burying her, they decided to throw her into the river, at a spot under a bridge.


    But Bobo made a sound and moved, indicating she was still alive. Adams retrieved a pistol from his truck, Autry said.


    Autry then walked around the area to make sure no one was around, he said.


    Autry told Adams the area was clear. He then heard a gunshot coming from the location where Adams and Bobo were.


    It sounded like, boom, boom, boom, underneath that bridge. It was just one shot but it echoed, Autry said. Birds went everywhere, all up under that bridge. Then just dead silence for just a second.


    Fearing capture, he and Adams loaded Bobos body back into the truck and drove away, Autry said.


    McGinley, the judge, praised Autry's testimony.


    His testimony was some of the most credible, persuasive testimony I've ever heard given in a courtroom, the judge said Monday.


    Bobos parents were in the courtroom Monday and prosecutor Paul Hagerman said they supported plea deal.


    Autrys testimony helped answer important factual questions in the case, the prosecutor said.


    It was a very important piece in getting justice for Holly, Hagerman said.
