    Local Jackson residents react to delayed Holly Bobo trial

    July 9, 2017

    JACKSON, Tenn. – “And if they don’t have any consequences for their actions then what’s gonna happen?” John Bond, a Jackson native, said.

    The family of Holly Bobo has been waiting three years for this trial to begin, and now they have to wait another 2 months. The trial was pushed back to September after a new piece of evidence was introduced.

    “If they have found a weapon I think they do need time to do the forensics on the weapon so it can be used in the case to prosecute,” Mal Matthews, a Jackson native, said.

    Then on friday, the WBBJ News Room received a court document. It says that four men have been given immunity in the case. One of them, Shayne Austin, is dead.

    That means that anything they say during their testimony cannot be used against them in this case.

    One woman said that her family has experienced something very similar to the Bobo family and every day they work to overcome.

    I knew they would get a delay as soon as the 'found gun, possible murder weapon' came up.
    Frustrated and disappointed tho at yet another delay.
    @[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]; Why can't you read the immunity agreement, is the link not working for you?

    Agree with all the above, what I find odd is in the agreement still list Shayne Austin's name, even though he committed suicide in 2/2015

    State Believes They Have Holly Bobo Murder Weapon

    7:28 PM, Jul 10, 2017

    SAVANNAH, Tenn. - State prosecutors believe they finally have the weapon used to kill nursing student Holly Bobo. It was a shocking revelation that came on the same day the trial of one of her accused killer's was scheduled to get underway.

    Court documents reveal that state prosecutors believe a recently discovered gun is the murder weapon used to kill Bobo all those years ago, calling it a "critical piece of evidence."

    The gun is listed as an Arminus model HW5, 32 caliber Smith and Wesson long revolver. It's still unclear where the gun was found or how it was found but it's cartridges have been tested for blood. The earliest mention of the gun being found was on May 26, 2017.

    Defense attorneys for Zach Adams, one of three men accused of kidnapping and killing Holly Bobo, have asked the gun be excluded has evidence.

    Last week, Judge Creed McGinley was forced to delay the start of the trial because defense attorneys argued they haven't had time to analyze or process the gun.

    As for an immunity agreement given to Jason Autry who's also accused of killing Holly, documents reviewed by NewsChannel 5 reveal that the state is considering reducing his charges in return for "truthful" testimony during Zach Adam's trial.

    Jason Kilzer, a known associate of Zach Adams, was also listed as a fifth person given immunity by state prosecutors. Michael Alexander and Victor Dinsmore will also not face prosecution for any testimony they may give during Adam's upcoming trial in September.

    Defense attorneys have also asked for all rape charges to be dropped because "it is undisputed that no evidence regarding the alleged rape of Ms. Bobo will be presented to the jury."

    Holly Bobo Murder Trial Update: Suspected Murder Weapon 'Crucial Piece Of Evidence,' State Says

    07/11/17 AT 5:18 AM

    New details have emerged about the gun found during the Memorial Day weekend that was linked to the murder of nursing student Holly Bobo. According to a new report, state prosecutors believe the gun was used to kill 20-year-old Bobo, who went missing in 2011.

    The trial in the case was delayed last week after authorities said they did not have enough details on the recently discovered weapon. However, court documents reveal the gun is now a "critical piece of evidence."

    The gun, found by Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, is listed as an Arminus model HW5, 32 caliber Smith and Wesson long revolver. The gun's cartridges have been tested for blood but no other detail is currently available. Defense attorneys for Zachery Adams, one of the three men accused of kidnapping and killing Bobo, have asked the gun be excluded as evidence, according to the local networks.

    Adams’ trial was scheduled to begin last week, but new evidence in the case forced the delay. The judge granted the motion to continue the trial until September.

    Meanwhile, Nashville's [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] reported Bobo's parents have called to testify in her murder case, along with Adam's grandfather Dick Adams.

    Ahead of the trial, [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] — Victor Dinsmore, Michael Alexander, Jason Kilzer, Shayne Austin and Jason Wayne Autry — were granted federal or state immunity in the case last week.

    Defense attorneys requested for all rape charges to be dropped saying, "It is undisputed that no evidence regarding the alleged rape of Ms. Bobo will be presented to the jury."

    Defense asks for change of venue in Holly Bobo case

    July 11, 2017

    SAVANNAH, Tenn. — Hundreds of pages of court documents provide new insight into the case against Zach Adams, one of the men charged with raping and killing Decatur County nursing student Holly Bobo.

    Adams’ attorney does not want evidence from an Arminius model HW5, 32 S&W Long Revolver introduced at trial, according to court documents. The prosecution called the gun a "critical piece of evidence," according to court documents. Judge Creed McGinley delayed the trial until Sept. 11 after the defense asked for testing on the gun.

    Adams’ attorney also motioned for another change of venue. According to court documents, the defense claimed more than 97 percent of qualified jurors have heard or discussed the case, over half have participated in conversations about it with family or friends, and more than a third have received or seen information from flyers, postcards or posters distributed by the Bobo family or support groups.

    According to court documents, it is unclear if the state will call Adams’ brother, John "Dylan" Adams, as a witness. Dylan reportedly incriminated himself and Zach, according to court documents. The state said Jason Autry, one of the other men originally charged in Bobo’s death and disappearance, will testify, according to court documents. Autry has been granted immunity in the case, according to court documents.

    Fifth man given immunity in Holly Bobo murder case
    Posted: Jul 11, 2017 5:41 PM CDT

    A fifth man has been granted immunity in the case of murdered nursing student Holly Bobo.

    Channel 4 reported last week that Shayne Austin, Jason Autry, Michael Alexander and Victor Dinsmore had been given immunity deals in exchange for their testimony. Jason Kilzer has also been given immunity, Channel 4 learned.

    Kilzer has faced statutory rape charges in Decatur County. He has served time for burglary and theft in Henderson County.
    In September 2013, Kilzer was indicted in federal court along with Holly Bobo murder suspect Dylan Adams. According to court records, the indictment was in connection with a gun.
    According to the indictment, Dylan Adams gave Kilzer the gun, a .38 caliber revolver along with four rounds. *
    Both Dylan Adams and Kilzer are accused of selling and disposing of the gun,*moving it across state lines, and, according to the indictment, the gun's serial number had been removed.

    This was not the gun the state recently discovered in the Holly Bobo murder case, according to records.
    The recently discovered gun is listed as an Arminius HW5 .32-caliber Smith and Wesson long revolver. In court documents, defense attorneys said*they "anticipate the state will attempt to introduce it as the alleged murder weapon."*
    Defense attorneys have also filed a motion for another change of venue to select a jury from somewhere besides Hardin County. The defense cited Channel 4 News stories

    They said*there has been more coverage of this crime than any other in the history of Hardin County.
    They also said*out of the 70 potential jurors 36 claimed to know about Holly Bobo's murder,*including one woman who posted about it on Facebook.*
    Dozens of motions have been filed. The judge plans to rule on them on Aug. 9, then barring any more delays, the case is set to go to trial on Sept. 11.

    Judge denies motion to delay Holly Bobo*trial
    Aug. 9, 2017
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]


    The Holly Bobo murder trial is scheduled to start September 11, 2017. In Hardin County Court Wednesday morning, attorneys for Zach Adams, who is the first suspect to be tried with Bobo's murder, pushed to get the trial delayed until January.
    The judge said no and also repeated what he said last year about what won't be allowed when the trial starts.
    "I will not tolerate signs, placards, T-shirts; anything like that could be perceived as trying to influence the prospective jurors," *the judge said back in 2016.
    In a shocker, the state hinted at something that could indicate how Holly Bobo died. They said experts found an indentation in the nursing student's skull similar to that of a bullet hole.

    There was also another sign this trial may be a long one: The state says it plans to call 200 witnesses.
    The defense says it will take them a week to present their case, meaning it may be a long time for the Bobo family to get the justice they have been seeking.
    Twenty-year-old Holly Bobo was kidnapped from her family home in Decatur County, Tennessee, in April 2011. It wasn't until 2014 that suspects Zachary Adams, Dylan Adams and Jason Autry were indicted.
