Holly Bobo Case Delayed, Set For July 10

Posted at 10:52 AM, Mar 01, 2017

The judge in the Holly Bobo murder case has granted a continuance, delaying the case until July 10.

Judge Creed McGinley cited a few reasons for the continuance including the fact that defense lawyers are still waiting for discovery evidence.

"If court did not grant motion for continuance there would be high risk of potentially reversible error," McGinley said.

As a result, the trial will start July 10th inside a Savannah Tennessee courtroom.

"My goal is to try this case once and to try it right,” McGinley stated.

The trial has also officially been moved to Hardin County from this date forward.

Reports stated 550 people have been summoned for jury selection in the case.

Three men, Jason Autry, along with brothers Zach and Dylan Adams, have been set to go on trial in the Holly Bobo case.

The first trial date had originally been set for April 5. Now, jury selection has still been scheduled to take place for the trial during the first week in April, and according to reports, the jury will be "extremely sequestered."
