MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Authorities have added a charge of witness coercion against a man accused of kidnapping and killing Tennessee nursing student Holly Bobo.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation says agents served an arrest warrant on the new charge against 29-year-old Zachary Rye Adams on Tuesday.

Adams has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder and especially aggravated kidnapping charges in the Bobo case. He is jailed without bond in Chester County.

Bobo was 20 when she disappeared from her home near Parsons in Decatur County on April 13, 2011. Her body has not been found.

The TBI did not say why Adams was hit with the new charge. Authorities have released few details of their investigation, which is ongoing.
