Opening statements could begin today in Lovette trial


HILLSBOROUGH (WTVD) -- Opening statements could be heard Monday in the trial of Laurence Lovette Jr. He's the second man charged in connection with the murder of UNC Student Body President Eve Carson.

Eleven jurors were seated Friday but one more plus two alternates are needed to fill out the jury. Due to extensive pre-trial publicity, each juror is being interviewed privately.

Police say Carson was kidnapped from her off-campus home, forced into her SUV and driven to various ATMs while Lovette and Demario Atwater withdrew cash from Carson's accounts.
