SAVANNAH, Tenn. — A man charged in the 2011 abduction, rape and killing of a Tennessee woman is expected to testify against one of his co-defendants.

The Jackson Sun reports that according to court documents filed last week, Jason Autry will testify against Zach Adams in the rape of 20-year-old Holly Bobo. Adams’ trial was scheduled to start Monday, but during jury selection last week, the trial was delayed after a motion by Adams’ attorney to allow more time to test a gun.

Adams has pleaded not guilty to kidnapping, rape and murder charges.

Bobo disappeared from her home in Parsons in April 2011. Authorities say that in September 2014 two men found her skull in a wooded area in Decatur County.

Adams’ trial has been rescheduled for Sept. 11.
