Federal prosecutors have indicted one of the two men accused in the slaying of UNC Student Body President Eve Carson.

A federal grand jury returned an indictment yesterday against 22-year-old Demario Atwater. The indictment on a charge of carjacking resulting in death could allow federal authorities to seek a death sentence.

State prosecutors had already charged Atwater with murder in the March 5th death of 22-year-old Eve Carson.

17-year-old Laurence Lovette is also charged in state court. He cannot be sentenced to death because the crime was committed before he turned 18.
