DECATURVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A judge says prosecutors should not wait until the end of a court-ordered 90-day period to hand over all their evidence to the defense attorney for a man charged in the disappearance of a West Tennessee nursing student three years ago.
Decatur County Circuit Judge Charles Creed McGinley said Wednesday that prosecutors should start handing over evidence they have already gathered in the case of Zachary Adams.
The 29-year-old Adams was indicted on murder and kidnapping charges in March as part of the investigation into the disappearance of 20-year-old Holly Bobo in April 2011. He has pleaded not guilty.
Prosecutors and the investigators have released few details. Investigators say Bobo's body has not been found.
Another man, Jason Autry, has also been charged with kidnapping and murder in the case.
