HILLSBOROUGH, N.C. (AP) -- One of two men accused of killing the student body president at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill more than three years ago has pleaded not guilty.
Twenty-one-year-old Laurence Alvin Lovette of Durham entered the plea Thursday ahead of his trial, set to begin Nov. 28 in Hillsborough.
Twenty-two-year-old Eve Carson of Athens, Ga., was shot to death on March 5, 2008, after she was abducted and robbed.
Lovette's co-defendant, DeMario Atwater, pleaded guilty last year and was sentenced to life in prison.
Investigators say the men abducted Carson and forced her to withdraw $1,400 from automated teller machines before they shot her five times. Her body was found on a Chapel Hill street.
