NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Hardin County Court officials have confirmed that Zachary Adams' attorney has filed a generic motion for a new trial. 

According to the clerk, the request did not allege any new information but says Adams' legal team has 30 days to amend the original filing to include more insight into their request for a new trial.

In September, Adams was sentenced to life in prison without parole plus 50 years for the kidnapping, rape and murder of Holly Bobo. Before his sentencing hearing, defense attorneys and state prosecutors met and worked out the agreement that allowed Zach Adams not to face the death penalty.

Adams will serve life without parole on the murder counts, which were merged into one count. An additional 50 years was added to the sentence for the rape convictions.
