DECATURVILLE, Tennessee — The brother of a man accused of kidnapping and killing a 20-year-old nursing student has been charged with tampering with evidence in the case.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said in a news release Thursday that on April 13, 2011, the day Holly Bobo disappeared in West Tennessee, 26-year-old John Dylan Adams of Decatur County disposed of items he knew could be evidence in the case.

Adams is the brother of Zachary Adams. He was charged with murder in March and his family has property about 6 miles from where Bobo's remains were found by ginseng hunters this month.

Another man, Jason Autry, faces the same charges as Zachary Adams. Both men have pleaded not guilty.

The TBI said John Dylan Adams was in jail without bond.
