On Tuesday, a friend of Laurence Lovette Jr. testified about spending several hours with Lovette on the day police made public a warrant for his arrest. Jayson McNeil, who is currently in federal prison on drug charges, hopes to get a lesser sentence in return for his testimony.

"They got Rio, they got Rio," McNeil recalled Lovette saying.


Lovette was worried that "Rio," i.e., Demario Atwater, would tell police about him. Lovette also told McNeil that he and Atwater grabbed Eve Carson as she approached her Toyota Highlander.


Lovette, according to McNeil's account, took the wheel while Atwater forced Carson into the back seat. As Lovette drove them around, Carson begged for her life.


McNeil said that Lovette "explained to me how he murdered her. He explained to me that he shot her five times and that she was still alive, that she took the bullets, that she was still talking."


Atwater, according to McNeil, then stood over Carson with a shotgun and shot her.


McNeil's account capped a day of testimony that included the medical examiner.


Dr. Cynthia Gardner performed the autopsy. Jurors dabbed at their eyes as she showed them photos of the wounds she found on Eve Carson.
