DECATURVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Prosecutors say a third man has been charged with murder in the case of a slain Tennessee nursing student.

The Shelby County District Attorney's office said Wednesday that John Dylan Adams has been charged with premeditated first-degree murder and murder in the perpetration of aggravated kidnapping and aggravated rape of Holly Bobo.

Adams' brother, Zachary Adams, and another man, Jason Autry, also face the same charges after new indictments were issued. Zachary Adams and Autry already had been previously charged with murder and kidnapping.

Bobo was 20 when she was reported missing from her home in rural Parsons in April 2011. Her disappearance and the subsequent lengthy search attracted national attention. Authorities say her skull was found in woods in Decatur County in September.
