Body

GREENSBORO — A man accused in the slaying of University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill student body president Eve Carson now faces a federal kidnapping charge.

The man, 22-year-old Demario Atwater, already had been indicted by a federal grand jury on one count of carjacking resulting in death, and carrying and using firearms during and in relation to carjacking. Both charges carry a potential death sentence.

A superseding indictment filed on Jan. 30 included the new charge.

Atwater and 18-year-old Laurence Lovette face state murder charges in the March 5 death of 22-year-old Eve Carson of Athens, Ga. She had been shot five times, including once with a 12-gauge shotgun.

Lovette will not face the death penalty in her death because he was under 18 when Carson was killed.
