Attorneys working the case of a man who has been accused in a Holly Bobo’s death have met with potential jurors before selection begins in roughly six weeks.

The Jackson Sun reported jury selection will begin September 9 before Zachary Rye Adams is tried following his not guilty plea to kidnapping, rape, and murder charges in the death of Bobo. Attorneys met with potential jurors on Thursday in Hardin County, asking that some be prepared to return for selection and ready to listen September 11 when the trial begins.

Some jurors have been released for their death penalty beliefs, which prosecutors have been seeking.

Bobo disappeared from her Parsons home in April 2011. Authorities said in September 2014 two men found the 20-year-old's skull in a Decatur County wooded area.
