MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Defense attorneys may be a step closer to understanding what evidence prosecutors have against their clients in the case of a missing nursing student whose partial remains were found more than three years after her disappearance.
Tennessee Bureau of Investigation spokesman Josh DeVine said Thursday the bureau has completed its analysis of more than 460 pieces of evidence in the case of Holly Bobo, who was 20 when she disappeared from her house in April 2011.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee Supreme Court has agreed to consider whether news media are entitled to records related to a rape case against four former Vanderbilt University football players.
The Court of Appeals in September ruled that records sought by a statewide media coalition should not be made public because they’re part of a continuing police investigation. The decision reversed a lower court that found that some records given to police should be made available.
MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WMOT) -- There’s a new twist in the push by gun advocates to make Tennessee an “open carry” state.
Last year a bill that would have broadened the right of Tennesseans to openly carry a firearm in public passed the State Senate, but died in a House committee in the closing days of the legislative session.
The measure failed in committee because a so-called fiscal note was attached indicating the bill would cost the state more than $100,000 to implement.
