SHELBY COUNTY, TN (WMC) - A judge appointed Shelby County Deputy District Attorney Jennifer Nichols to take over as the special prosecutor in the Holly Bobo murder case. The order was signed Tuesday.

This decision comes days after defense attorneys filed motions with the court to drop charges against Zach Adams and Jason Autry.  

Holly Bobo went missing in April 2011. Her skull was found in September 2014.

Investigators charged Zach Adams and Jason Autry with kidnapping and murder in March. Zach Adams' brother, Dylan, was charged with tampering with evidence in connection with the case.

However, attorneys said they had not received evidence from prosecutors linking Adams and Autry to Bobo's murder.

Nichols was assisting prosecutor Matt Stowe with the case, but the Shelby County DA was pulled back after a conflict developed between Prosecutor Matt Stowe and Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.

The air around the bolt heats up rapidly and it...
