HILLSBOROUGH, NC (AP) — A man accused of killing the student body president at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill more than three years ago is scheduled to go on trial.

Twenty-one-year-old Laurence Alvin Lovette of Durham was set to appear in court Monday in Hillsborough for the hearing of motions, with jury selection slated to begin Tuesday.

Twenty-two-year-old Eve Carson of Athens, Ga., was shot to death on March 5, 2008, after she was abducted and robbed.

Lovette’s co-defendant, DeMario Atwater, pleaded guilty last year and was sentenced to life in prison.

Lovette has pleaded not guilty.

Investigators say the men abducted Carson and forced her to withdraw $1,400 from automated teller machines before they shot her five times. Her body was found on a Chapel Hill street.
