Closing Arguments Today For Laurence Lovette

The trial for a man charged with killing a University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill student body president is coming to an end.

A judge scheduled closing arguments in the murder trial of Laurence Lovette for Monday morning.

Prosecutors say Lovette and a co-defendant already serving a life sentence after pleading guilty kidnapped Eve Carson from her Chapel Hill home in March 2008 and forced her to withdraw $1,400 with her bank card before shooting her and dumping her body in the street.

Carson was from Athens, Ga., and was getting ready to graduate.

If Lovette is convicted, he won't face the possibility of the death penalty because he was a minor at the time.

Prosecutors called dozens of witnesses over seven days, while Lovette's attorneys called no witnesses.

    He will get life. His punishment will be watching colored TV 12 hours a day, eating 3 hots daily, exercising, etc. Boy we really punish murderers in this county

    Closing argument, this piece of trash should have been taken care of along time ago. What needs to be closed is the lid on his casket!

    As soon as this man was conceived with a Mom with no father and probably doesn't know who he is. This loser is just a another useless peice of crap that aspires to be nothing more than a DRAG on society. His choice. Sad that a life as beautiful as Eve's would be snuffed out by garbage like Laurence Lovettes and his thug friends. LOSERS.
