The Holly Bobo trial started its second day of testimony Tuesday as Tennessee prosecutors continued their case against Zachary Adams, who they claim raped and killed the nursing student in 2011.

Bobo's parents testified about the last time they saw their daughter alive, with her mother collapsing while viewing her daughter's purse, which was in evidence, WSMV-TV reported.

"I feel like I can't breathe," Karen Bobo said in court before Judge C. Creed McGinley ordered the courtroom cleared and paramedics to attend to her, The Jackson Sun reported.

Another witness testified he heard screams the morning Bobo went missing, per WSMV-TV.

Holly Bobo was a 20-year-old nursing student when she went missing from her backyard in Parsons, Tennessee, on April 13, 2011. Her disappearance led to an intensive search by law enforcement and hundreds of volunteers before hunters stumbled across her remains in northern Decatur County in 2014, The Jackson Sun said.

Prosecutors have charged Zachary Adams with murder, rape and kidnapping. Authorities charged Jason Autry and John Dylan Adams in the case, but Autry has been offered immunity to testify, the Sun said.

Prosecutor Paul Hagerman claimed that Zachary Adams was on methamphetamine and morphine when he allegedly kidnapped, raped, and killed Bobo, WREG-TV reported. Hagerman said Zachary Adams took her to Autry to help him dispose of her body, according to the television station.

Hagerman said when Adams found out Bobo was still alive after taking her to Autry's home he took a gun and shot her in the head, the Sun reported.

Bobo's remains were discovered 3 ½ years later near her home in Decatur County, located about 100 miles southwest of Nashville, WREG-TV wrote. The prosecutor said they found a gun they believe Adams used in the crime.

"He took her, he raped her, he killed her, he discarded her, he covered it up, he almost got away with it," Hagerman said, according to WREG-TV. "But he didn't."

Jennifer Thompson, Zachary Adams' defense attorney, said police and prosecutors have rushed to close the case and have the wrong person, the Sun stated.
