LEXINGTON, Tenn. - The case against a man charged with accessory after the fact and tampering with evidence in the slaying of 20-year-old nursing student Holly Bobo case was sent to the grand jury Tuesday after a preliminary hearing.

At the hearing, Sandra King testified that Jeffrey Pearcy showed her a video in which Bobo was tied up and crying. King testified that Zachary Adams, who is charged with Bobo's murder and kidnapping, also was in the video.

King testified that Jeffrey Pearcy told her his brother Mark Pearcy took a video of Adams raping Bobo. King testified that she did not watch the whole video and did not see a rape take place.

Jeffrey Pearcy denies the existence of such a video. He said after court Tuesday that he's never seen a video like the one King described.

Pearcy's brother Mark faces the same charges and is awaiting a preliminary hearing. Mark Pearcy also has pleaded not guilty.

A Tennessee Bureau of Investigations agent testified Tuesday that authorities have a phone belonging to Mark Pearcy that they are trying to unlock to see if it contains the alleged video.

Bobo was abducted the morning of April 13, 2011, from outside her home in Darden, Tenn. Her brother told investigators he saw a man wearing camouflage walking her into the woods.

Adams was indicted in March on charges of especially aggravated kidnapping and first-degree murder.

A second man, Jason Wayne Autry, was indicted in April on first-degree murder and especially aggravated kidnapping charges.
