Federal prosecutors will seek the death penalty against a man charged with killing UNC Chapel Hill student body president Eve Carson.
Attorney General Michael Mukasey has approved prosecutors' request to seek the execution of 22-year-old Demario Atwater. Atwater pleaded not guilty last month to four federal charges, including carjacking resulting in death. His trial is set for November.
Co-defendant, Laurence Lovette, is also charged in Carson's death but isn't eligible for the death penalty.
