Prosecution team given state award for convicting Zach Adams

DECATUR COUNTY, TN (WMC) - The prosecution team that convicted Zach Adams in the murder of Holly Bobo was awarded for its efforts.

Bobo, a West Tennessee nursing student, was abducted, raped, and murdered in 2011.

Last month, Adams was found guilty of the murder.

Jennifer Nichols, Paul Hagerman, Eric Christensen, Stephen Ragland, and Amy McCullough were presented with the President's Award for their work on the case.

Shelby County District Attorney Amy Weirich nominated the five for the award which is given each year by vote of the state's 31 elected District Attorneys as members of the Tennessee District Attorneys General Conference.

"The Bobo case made them known statewide," Weirich said. "The way they handle every case is what makes them most deserving of the award."
