Suspects in Bobo case ask judge to drop charges
DECATURVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Attorneys for two men charged with kidnapping and murdering Holly Bobo are asking for those charges to be dismissed.
A Memphis television station reports the motion by the attorneys for Zach Adams and Jason Autry states that they have yet to receive "dental records analysis and forensic studies" of a skull that law enforcement says is Bobo's. Autry's attorney Fletcher Long told the station the lack of information is "a little suspicious."
Adams has been in jail since March and Autry has been in jail since April. At a court hearing on December 17 in Decatur County, the judge expressed concern that prosecutors had not yet provided key evidence to defense attorneys and ordered the state to begin turning it over by December 24.
Long says the state has missed that deadline.
