DECATURVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A Tennessee judge has set a target trial date in early 2017 for at least one of three men charged with murder in the 2011 disappearance of a Tennessee nursing student.

The Jackson Sun reports that Decatur County Chancery Judge C. Creed McGinley said Wednesday that he expects to begin a trial on April 3, 2017, though McGinley said he is not sure if the three men charged will go to trial together or individually.

Brothers Zach and John Dylan Adams and Jason Autry are charged in the death of Holly Bobo, who disappeared from her home in April 2011. They are charged with premeditated murder as well as murder in the perpetration of aggravated kidnapping and aggravated rape.

Pastor Don Franks says Bobo's family supports the proposed trial date.
