The second suspect in the 2008 murder of Student Body President Eve Carson ’08 is scheduled to go on trial Nov. 28 in Orange County.
Laurence Alvin Lovette was under age 18 at the time of the crime, so if he were to be convicted of murder in the first degree, he would not be subject to the death penalty.
Demario Atwater pleaded guilty to the murder in September 2010 and received a life sentence for kidnapping resulting in death, a life sentence and two 10-year sentences on carjacking and weapons charges, and a 10-year sentence for discharging a weapon resulting in death.
Police say that Atwater and Lovette encountered Carson in the early morning hours of March 5, 2008, either inside or just outside her home near downtown Chapel Hill. They kidnapped her and drove in her vehicle to automatic teller machines in Orange and Durham counties, where they forced Carson to withdraw $1,400. Prosecutors said Carson then was shot five times.
