Transcript for Jury returns with verdict in man's trial for Holly Bobo's murder: Part 6
Reporter: 11 hours over two days, the jury deliberates the fate of holly Bobo's alleged killer, Zach Adams. A week ago tonight they come back into court. Has the jury reached a verdict in this case? Reporter: And tell the judge they have found Zach Adams guilty on all counts. You checked guilty of first degree felony murder. Reporter: The Bobo family agrees with prosecutors to allow Adams to avoid a death sentence. A mercy they believe he did not show their daughter. Reporter: Why did you make that decision? So that we can hopefully start doing a little bit of healing. Reporter: Life in prison without the possibility of parole? Yes. Plus 50 years. Plus 50 years. Reporter: Is that enough punishment for you? There'll never be enough punishment for him. He don't deserve to be breathing air that he's breathing today. Reporter: After sentencing, the woman who taught Zach Adams in the fourth grade, insists that he pay attention once again. Can you back up just a little bit so I can, so he can look at me? And I know that she begged for her life, because my daughter loved and enjoyed life. But you chose to take that from her. Reporter: Karen Bobo has a memento of holly that she keeps close. It's so pretty it's her daughter's promise ring, recovered in the woods with her remains. Reporter: The last moments of the trial belong not to the judge or the jury, or Zach Adams, they belong to holly Bobo. She was raised in a Christian home with lots of love and laughter. There will be none of that anymore for all of us, because there is a piece of us that will always be missing. Reporter: As she wrote in her song, Whitney Duncan says their family knows that holly is in a better place. ??? Cuts like a knife when I hear your name ??? I think of her every day. Hearing somebody talk about it or coming home and seeing the signs and seeing her picture. It makes me sad, but I don't want to be sad. I want to think about the happy times that I had with her. ??? ??? in a better place ???
