Records: probation officer never met with teen charged in Carson's death


RALEIGH (AP) -- Records show the probation officer ordered to monitor Laurence Alvin Lovette never met with the teen, now charged with killing two college students.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reported Wednesday that records show officer Chalita Thomas went by Lovette's mother's home in Durham once in late February, but he wasn't there.

Lovette is charged with killing University of North Carolina student body president Eve Carson earlier this month and Duke University graduate student Abhijit Mahato in January.

Lovette had been placed on probation in January after he pleaded guilty to larceny and breaking and entering.

Correction Department spokesman Keith Acree says the handling of Lovette's case is under review.
