One of two brothers charged in connection to the disappearance of nursing student Holly Bobo will have his preliminary hearing next week.
Wearing a bullet proof vest, Mark Pearcy appeared in a Decatur County courtroom Monday where a judge appointed Jackson attorney Michael Cash his public defender.
Now that he has representation, Pearcy’s preliminary hearing will take place next Monday.
Bobo went missing from her home outside Parsons, Tenn. on the morning of April 13, 2011.

Zachary Adams and Jason Autry are accused of kidnapping and murdering Bobo and Mark Pearcy and his brother Jeffrey are believed to possess a video that may help prove the charges.
Affidavits show that Mark’s voice may be on that video, and Jeffrey knows where it is and even showed it to an unidentified witness.
Jeffrey Pearcy’s attorney denies such a video exists and the accusations against his client, he says, are untrue.
It’s not clear exactly what is on the recording or if authorities actually have the recording.
