A man who has pleaded guilty to federal charges in the death of a University of North Carolina student body president returns to court to face state charges in the case.
The Herald-Sun of Durham reported that Demario Atwater will be in court Monday afternoon in Hillsborough.
He is charged with murder, armed robbery, kidnapping and other charges in the 2008 death of Eve Carson of Athens, Georgia. She had been shot five times with a 12-gauge shotgun.
Atwater pleaded guilty last month to several charges, including carjacking resulting in death and kidnapping. He is scheduled to be sentenced in federal court September 23. His agreement with prosecutors is for a life sentence.
