(WMC) - Two additional men have been charged in connection to the case of missing Tennessee nursing student, Holly Bobo. 

Brothers Mark and Jeffrey Pearcy have been charged with tampering with evidence and accessory after the fact. Authorities are not releasing information about the evidence that led to the charges.

Mark is a registered sex offender with a statutory rape conviction back in 2000. He is expected in court on Monday.

Jeffrey Pearcy, who has to wear an ankle monitor, went before a judge Wednesday, and he pleaded not guilty. According to his attorney, Jeffrey was asked if he was forwarded or emailed a video of Holly Bobo. The attorney says his client has never seen a video of Bobo.

Bobo disappeared from her Darden home in 2011. Zachary Adams and Jason Autry are charged with especially aggravated kidnapping and first-degree felony murder in her disappearance.

The brothers' connection to Adams or Autry remains unclear.
