MEMPHIS, TN - A man charged with kidnapping, raping and killing a Tennessee nursing student who disappeared from her home six years ago is going to trial.

Opening statements are scheduled Monday in the trial of Zachary Adams in Savannah, Tennessee.

Adams has pleaded not guilty. So have two other men — Jason Autry and Adams' brother, John Dylan Adams. They also face kidnapping, rape and murder charges. Their trials have not been scheduled.

Bobo was 20 when she went missing from her home in Parsons in April 2011. Her remains were found three years later in a wooded area.

Adams faces the death penalty if convicted at a trial that caps an investigation Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Director Mark Gwynn has called the most exhaustive and expensive his agency ever conducted.
