Defendants In Death Of UNC Student Body President Indicted

An Orange County grand jury indicted 17-year-old Laurence
Lovette and 21 year-old Demario James Atwater in the death of UNC student body president Eve Carson.

Lovette and James were both indicted on a charge of first degree murder.

Prosecutors have begun the process of revoking the probation of Atwater. The News & Observer of Raleigh reports that he appeared Monday in a Wake County courtroom, where he learned he would return to court May 1 to further discuss the violations.

Carson was killed March 5, a few days after Atwater was first
scheduled to appear on the probation violation. He was sent to the
wrong courtroom and the hearing was delayed.

    This is intended for prior posts...low life, gabbage and other degrading terms used for these young people. I would like to ask you all- would you blame the parent(s) as to why these young kids CHOSE this decision? To all parents... When was the last time you ask your child WHat is his or her favorite color? These kids made a choice that neccessary would not had cause them to become low lives or gabbage. How about 1st Peter 5:8. My condolences to all families.May God continue to grace you with understanding and forgivness as to why this happened. According to 1st Peter 5:8 and please do not dismiss that any of us can make a choice that could cause a negative difference in our lives or that of another by any evil force. These KIDS/FAMILIES along with the VICTIMS FAMILIES need our prayers.As a society as a whole how do we combat these senseless acts---simple---we PRAY! GOD the mix of this sorrow still in control.

    I guess I'll be the first to comment. I am truly speechless these young men will spend the rest of their natural born lives in pergortory in one way or another. What a wasted future. Its more even sad to think that once in prison they grow up and now realize...Oh did I end up here. May God heal both side of these families.
