Eve Carson: Her killers blew her pretty, white face off.

HILLSBOROUGH — Orange-Chatham District Attorney Jim Woodall has scheduled Laurence Lovette to appear Orange County Criminal Superior Court on Nov. 28 to face charges that he killed Eve Carson.

“I anticipate that there is going to be a trial,” Woodall said, rather than a plea arrangement like the one that federal prosecutors made with Demario James Atwater in 2010. Because Lovette was 17 at the time at the time of Carson’s death, a first-degree murder charge does not carry the risk of the death penalty.

There will probably be a trial. Since the death penalty is not being sought, Lovette and his attorneys have nothing to lose.

North Carolina allows cameras in the courtroom. Do you think HLN will cover this trial?

Hahaha! A young, black dirtbag accused of killing a white dreamgirl? Not bloody likely! It would "confirm too many stereotypes."
