After an emotional and dramatic first day of testimony in Zachary Adams‘ trial on charges related to the abduction, rape, and felony murder of Holly Bobo, trial is scheduled to resume at 8 a.m. Tuesday.
On Monday, jury members heard from 20-year-old nursing student Holly Bobo‘s mother, Karen, father, Dana, and her brother, Clint.
In Monday’s testimony, Karen Bobo broke down in tears while listening to her own 911 call to the Decatur County Sheriff’s Office. Ultimately, the mother of two told the judge that she felt sick and was having trouble breathing.
Bobo collapsed on the stand after identifying items from her daughter’s purse, wallet and lunchbox, which included the food she packed for her daughter six years ago.
The final witness Monday was the first deputy from the Decatur County Sheriff’s Office to arrive at the Bobo house on April 13, 2011.
Tuesday’s testimony is expected to include more testimony from law enforcement officers who worked in the investigation and search for Holly Bobo.
Bobo was reported missing from her home on April 13, 2011, and her skull was found in northern Decatur County in September 2014.
Adams is charged with felony first-degree murder, especially aggravated kidnapping, and aggravated rape.
