New Charge In Carson Case

A 22-year-old man accused of helping kill University of North Carolina student body president Eve Carson is to go before a judge on federal charges from a superseding indictment.

Demario Atwater, who is scheduled to appear in court Wednesday, already faced several federal charges, including one count of carjacking resulting in death, and carrying and using firearms during and in relation to carjacking, both of which could see him sentenced to death. The superseding indictment included a kidnapping charge.

Atwater and 18-year-old Laurence Lovette face state murder charges in the March 5 death of 22-year-old Eve Carson of Athens, Ga. She had been shot five times, including once with a 12-gauge shotgun.

Lovette will not face the death penalty in her death because he was under 18 when Carson was killed.

    I know this is off topic, but wow! Everyone with braids do not have weave in their heads. Both of them are sporting their natural hair.

    My 10 year old knows that its wrong to kill someone . At 16 or 17 he knew better and the death penalty should be on the table for both of them.

    Does anyone know the specifics of this case? I remember hearing about it when it first happened. Seems like overkill and so unecessary. They should both face the death penalty.

    Hey Wilma, yea I am sure they did not do it and of course it was not their fault- just look at the two innocent looking, hard working young men.....yea, right Don't forget about the free health care they surely will complain about. The state won't execute them, even if they get sentenced, we will just pay for them until they die, or just get set out to do other horrific crimes---like the two they are looking for in Goldsboro.(both with long criminal histories) thanks NC gov't
