Trial in UNC student leader’s death nears end

HILLSBOROUGH, NC (AP) — The conclusion is near in the trial of a man accused of murdering University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill student body president Eve Carson.

Prosecutors rested their case Thursday after calling dozens of witnesses over seven days.

Lawyers for Laurence Lovette offered no defense witnesses, and Judge Allen Baddour scheduled closing arguments for Monday.

Lovette is accused of teaming with DeMario Atwater in abducting Athens, Ga. native Carson in March 2008. Investigators say the duo forced her to withdraw $1,400 from automated teller machines in Chapel Hill and Durham before shooting her to death.

Lovette has pleaded not guilty.

Last year, Atwater pleaded guilty in the case and was sentenced to life in prison.
