Closing arguments, jury deliberations expected in Bobo case

Closing arguments, jury deliberations expected in Bobo case”

Thursday marked the tenth day of trial in Savannah, Tennessee. And the math on that is pretty simple.

The deal was rescinded after prosecutors said he wasn't truthful.

After six years of questions and delays and a week of shocking and emotional testimony, jurors are now deciding if Zach Adams is guilty of kidnapping, raping and murdering nursing student Holly Bobo in 2011.

Adams did not testify in his own defense.

Under questioning by Thompson, Walker said he interviewed Britt in jail in March 2013. And his answer was what?

"There was absolutely nothing, not a drop of blood, not a hair, not anything at all that connected him to Holly Bobo", Hagerman said.

Adams is one of three men accused of killing Bobo in 2011.

Adams faces the death penalty if convicted of first-degree murder.

Terry Dicus, a former TBI agent, testified Tuesday that cellphones belonging to Adams and Bobo were too far apart within a two-minute span shortly after she was abducted.

"Autry sold his death penalty to the state and the only price he had to pay was this tall tale", the attorney said. Then Austin and the Adams brothers raped Bobo in Austin's grandmother's barn, Hagerman said.

Thompson also challenged several details of his story, including that Autry said Bobo had been laid on her back when Adams stood over her and opened fire.

Both mentioned Zach Adams cleaning a mattress, which witnesses say they saw him doing after the police left.

"She was never gonna come out of that blanket alive, not a chance", Hagerman said. Her remains were found in woods 3 ½ years later not far from her Decatur County home, about 100 miles (160 kilometers) southwest of Nashville.

The defense also presented the gun, saying it was not strong enough to penetrate Bobo's skull. Walker said he told Britt investigators believed he kidnapped and harmed Bobo.

She says the government faced pressure and needed to pin the crime on someone quickly. "The person that took Holly on April 13 didn't bother to disguise because that person had been watching Holly's house", Thompson said.

A jury of six men and six women began deliberating the fate of Zachary Adams on Thursday afternoon after closing arguments wrapped up.

Judge C. Creed McGinley said the jury will work each day until 6 p.m. unless they are near a decision, which means they can continue working.
