NASHVILLE AP) - A man charged with kidnapping and murdering nursing student Holly Bobo is now being accused of threatening his own brother if the brother didn't keep quiet.

WTVF-TV  says they have obtained a police report saying that murder suspect Zachary Adams told a jail inmate to relay a message to his brother saying "if he don't shut his mouth he will be in the hole beside her."

Bobo's body was never found after the 20-year-old disappeared in 2011 outside her home near Parsons, Tenn. Last month Adams was charged with kidnapping and murder. Police have yet to give a motive.

This week authorities announced that Adams had been charged with one count of coercion of a witness.

Adams' attorney did not immediately respond to a message seeking comment.
