Former step-father: 'Living with Zachary Adams was like a recurring nightmare'

Zachary Adams' step-father says living with the now-accused killer was like a recurring nightmare. He says he slept with a meat cleaver for protection against Adams at night. Zachary Adams' step-father says living with the now-accused killer was like a recurring nightmare. He says he slept with a meat cleaver for protection against Adams at night.

(CNN / WBBJ) - The family of the man charged in Holly Bobo's disappearance is shedding new light on the case.

Zachary Adams' step-father says living with the now-accused killer was like a recurring nightmare. He says he slept with a meat cleaver for protection against Adams at night.

"I don't want to portray him as being a monster or anything, because he hasn't been proven guilty yet, but if he is found guilty, it won't surprise me," said Adams' step-father, who wanted to remain anonymous.

He says he has seen first hand the violence of which Zachary Adams is capable.

During the several years he was married into the family, he says Adams' problems got worse. During one incident, the step-father says, Adams' shot his own mother during an argument.

"Just destroyed our whole life," he said. "She almost died. If I hadn't been home she'd have bled to death."

With Adams' behind bars, his former step-father says it brings him a sense of relief, "My feelings are, if he did it, I will be glad to see him where he can't harm nobody else."
