Hearing In Carson Slaying Postponed

A hearing about possible evidence in the killing of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill's student body president has been canceled for a second time.

Attorneys for Demario Atwater and Laurence Lovette had been scheduled to meet Monday. But Orange County District Attorney Jim Woodall told WTVD-TV that both sides need more time to gather evidence.

Attorneys for both men are expected to file motions requesting access to records traditionally kept confidential.

Atwater and Lovette are charged in with first-degree murder, armed robbery and kidnapping in Eve Carson's March 5 death.

The 22-year-old from Athens, Ga., was taken from her Chapel Hill home and watched as hundreds of dollars were withdrawn from her bank account at several ATMs. She was later shot five times.

    There is a lot of media bias and mass hysteria that the media does induce in some cases, such as this one. Also, the very fact that she was the student body president of UNC (God forbid if the school was ECU) and practically walked on water makes it more tempting for the media to go absolutely stark raving mad with wall to wall coverage, fueling the outcry for the public execution of these two, if found guilty in a court of law. Oh, that's right. They already have been convicted by the media and the public. Good point, Rob. I agree 100%. On target as usual.

    Anonymous and Rob obviously were not around when the Duke Lacrosse case involving an AA female stayed in the national spotlight. The same media that gets the Obama in the headlight look rode the bandwagon of guilt against these men who were.........not guilty. And the charge against this woman after lying was? So Rob and anonymous, what exactly is your point?

    They need killing,just like they did to that young lady.I suggest it be scheduled for half-time at the Superbowl. lets make the death penalty a true deterent to crime.Clean out deathrow every year on Superbowl sunday. Then maybe criminals would reconsider the choices they make.

    So ROB your saying that it shouldn't matter, basically. Well needless to say you are WRONG! I don't care if she was black, white, yellow, or green. She was the student body president, whether she was white or not. That has nothing to do with color. I guarentee you if she (or he) was black (or any other) and was student body president it would be the exact same coverage, especially considering the grusomness behind it. This was a VERY brutal crime that should be dealt with to the FULL extent. Yes the 17 year can't be held to the death penalty NOW but to me it sholdn't matter. He was man enough to kill so he should be man enough to be killed. It almost falls under the old saying "you reap what you sow". Well here comes the reaping so called "men".

    I agree with you Rob. I've heard this kind of story many of times about victims who are young African American females, but the media doesn't cover those stories with as much intensity as this one.

    Once again I have stirred controversy about a comment regarding the Carson case. Let me set the record straight before calling me ignorant or some other childish name. The point that I have been trying to make all along is that Carson has been martyred by a public and the media in this state that are frothing at the mouth for vengeance. These two thugs would be lynched (watch out for the NAACP on this one) if all of you had your way. Her murder was a tragedy, and I agree 100% that these two stellar citizens should receive the maximum punishment by law. But, the media and the public would not be outraged if the victim was a person of color and attended a community college. Talk about being ignorant. It seems that there is a lot of this going around. And don't lie to yourselves. Most of you responding with comments are white and deep down would not care if the victim was black, Asian, or Hispanic. There are a lot of double standards in society anymore. This is one of them.
