A ceremony at the University of North Carolina will commemorate the one-year anniversary of the death of student body president Eve Carson.
Chancellor Holden Thorp will speak and a male student a cappella group will perform at the ceremony, scheduled for 4 p.m. Thursday at the Pit, on the Chapel Hill campus. The university also has plans for a memorial garden in Carson's name.
The 22-year-old Carson was kidnapped from her home the morning of March 5, 2008, and shot to death in the middle of a residential Chapel Hill street.
One man, 22-year-old Demario James Atwater, faces death on both federal carjacking and state murder charges in Carson's death. Another man, 18-year-old Laurence Lovette, faces murder, but won't
face the death penalty because he was 17 when Carson was killed.
