2nd person charged in Bobo case

Associated Press

DECATURVILLE, Tenn. - A grand jury indicted a second person Tuesday on murder and kidnapping charges in the disappearance of 20-year-old nursing student Holly Bobo three years ago.

Jason Autry, 39, was indicted by a special grand jury on charges of first-degree murder and especially aggravated kidnapping.

Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Director Mark Gwyn said at a Tuesday news conference in Decaturville that authorities have not found Bobo's body. However, he said they have sworn statements from witnesses who saw Bobo alive with Autry and Zachary Adams after Bobo disappeared from her home near Parsons in Decatur County on April 13, 2011.

Adams was indicted in March on the same charges that Autry now faces, and is currently being held without bond in the Chester County Jail.

Autry is serving a three-year sentence in Riverbend Maximum Security Institution in a separate case.

Gwyn said Adams and Autry were longtime friends.

District Attorney General Hansel McCadams said prosecutors could seek the death penalty in both cases.

Gwyn hinted that still others could be charged in the case.

"We believe there are other individuals out there with information about possible involvement," he said. "They can expect a knock at their door soon."
