SAVANNAH, Tenn. (AP) — A defense attorney says the case against a man charged with kidnapping and killing a Tennessee nursing student is "absolutely full of holes" and is based on "non-evidence" against her client.
Jennifer Thompson delivered her closing argument Thursday in the trial of Zachary Adams in Savannah, Tennessee. 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.
Her remains were found in September 2014. Adams faces death if convicted of first-degree murder.
Prosecutors said in closing arguments that Adams and two other men abducted Bobo and raped her before Adams killed her.
Thompson challenged an account told by one of those men, Jason Autry, in court about Bobo's killing.
