DECATURVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Prosecutors say a third man has been charged with murder in the death of a Tennessee nursing student reported missing in 2011.

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

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

The 20-year-old student was reported missing from her home in Parsons in April 2011. A lengthy search drew national attention and authorities say the woman's skull was found later that year in a wooded area in Tennessee.
