SAVANNAH, Tenn. (AP) — The Latest on the trial of a man accused of kidnapping and killing a Tennessee nursing student (all times local):

2:25 p.m.

An FBI agent says a man charged with kidnapping, raping and killing a Tennessee nursing student six years ago told him he got up from bed about two hours after authorities said she was taken from her home.

Matthew Ross testified Tuesday in the trial of Zachary Adams.

Bobo’s brother has said that he saw her walking with a man into woods behind the family’s home in Parsons on April 13, 2011. Clint Bobo called 911 to report his sister missing at about 8 a.m. that day.

Ross spoke with Adams days after she was reported missing.

Ross said Adams told him that he got up at about 10 or 10:30 a.m. on the day Bobo was taken. Ross says Adams also told him that he then went to a gas station with his brother, John Dylan Adams, and a friend.

A crime scene investigator says a blood sample collected from a carport located at the home of a slain Tennessee woman matched her DNA profile.

Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Special Agent Lawrence James testified Tuesday in the trial of Zachary Adams in Savannah, Tennessee. Adams has pleaded not guilty to kidnapping, raping and killing Holly Bobo. She was 20 when she disappeared from her home in Parsons, Tennessee, in April 2011. Her remains were found in 2014.

Bobo’s brother Clint has testified he saw his sister and a man in the carport before they walked together into woods next to the family’s home.

James, a forensic scientist, said one of five blood samples from the carport yielded a complete DNA profile. James said that complete profile matched Holly Bobo’s DNA.
