What kind of handgun did Lovette use and how many shots total did he fire?
He had a .25 caliber pistol (not a revolver) which used a 7-bullet clip). It was small enuff for him to hold in his outstretched palm & have it not seen. The DA called it "cheap." Probably 4--5 inches long horizontally & 3--4 inches long vertically. Not a lot of stopping power, but very handy & easily concealable.

He fired 5 shots: one shot that ended up in Eve's computer; one thru her upper right arm; one in her right buttocks; one in her cheek (face) and one into her right shoulder, none of which were immediately fatal. When the LEO's recovered the clip, it had 2 live rounds in it.

I think he'll be a bit scared when he first gets there. Just a bit. I think the folks he hung with in the hood all knew they would each wind up doing time -- either a little or a lot, so he'll be pretty cool about it.

He'll adapt and fit right in, I'm thinking. I think he will rack up some infractions and try to be a cool dude to get his props and won't ever be fit for the outside thus making LWOP a must for him. But I must say I think he'll have to pay some dues before he is accepted into a flock of "down" jailbirds. JMHO.

Lovette is one of the younger ones, so he will probably be sent to Polk or Foothills or some other prison where men from 18 to 25 are housed, and he will probably go to Polk initially where he will be tested to see his intelligence (that shouldn't take long, IMO ) and some psych tests. I think the DOC does at least try to do something for inmates as much as money, personnel, inmate attitude and time allows.

(Please know that I have learned this by following other cases on WS and then checked on the perps after they were in NC prisons. Then lots of online research into the various DOC prisons themselves. Probably many of you have done the same...) I think it would be really interesting to talk with a DOC person who works at such a facility to see how good or bad these places and inmates really are. As far as I know, every NC county has a DOC facility, with Raleigh having the Big Boy with the death bed...

I'm gonna have to review Eve's autopsy report (as much as i rather not) because I thought she was shot from behind in the arm, torso and buttocks as well as the left side of her face. All the shots from the .25 were on the same side of her body as well as the shotgun blast to her temple.
IIRC, 3 shots were from behind -- the buttocks, the upper arm, and the shoulder; the shot to her face was from the front, and I think the last shot. The shot to her shoulder was said to be from a higher-to-lower angle -- probably when she was already down on the asphalt. (The asphalt -- that poor, poor young woman, ohhh what animals they were. ) How painful for her -- I can't imagine. No wonder she probably couldn't lie still and quiet to fake being dead. I certainly think, even in her pain & panic, she thought about it -- she just couldn't do it. Plus the punks had to be sure.

Ain't no thang, just blow a hole in her head and GTH outta there so they can get more of her $9,000.00. Rio had to put his imprint on it, too.

another mini-rant, please pardon.....

The WRAL reported wondered if they had already resolved guilty/not guilty on the other charges. (We'll never know.) I just hope, hope, hope there is not that one lone juror who has had doubt from the beginning....

How good a job do we think the DT did? Good enuff to give that one juror a peg to hang his/her hat on??? Or did they start to tune them out like I did (I'm embarrassed to sayit, but I did ... ).

Yes, I agree, she's smart and she really tried to do her best for him. Classy lady, I thought all thru it.

I just hope she was not quite good enuff. She had a tuff job to do. And I wonder how she feels about it now.

This is an ugly thing to say, but true, nevertheless -- all of their friends, even Shanita Love, who had nothing to do with it and the DT should quit piling-on this woman, are at least a bit tainted and have brushed-up against The Man. They weren't members of a Boy Scout troop, nor were they in the Nat'l. Honor Society...

Maybe she had it with her when they kidnapped her or maybe it was in her car -- I don't remember at all (burned-out that brain cell in the 60's, I guess) any testimony about anyone taking it. Eve's roommate said he was missing his, but then he said he might have just misplaced it -- but they apparently didn't have his...



Big fat lotta help this was to you, huh luckyme???

Why can't Atwater be called as a witness? I didn't know that.

They usually don't -- one young'un that was convicted of 1st Deg Murder, Ryan Hare, is similar to our LA. Hare was just days shy of his 18th birthday when he organized & was the main participant in a horrible & senseless (aren't they all?) murder of a one-time friend of his .... He was convicted in September, 2010, and he is at Polk. He won a LWOP award for that horrible act on a pretty good kid about his same age. He is in "Close" custody, but has only had one infraction -- and he is not quite the same type as I view LA to be (since I know it all -- hah!). Polk is a close-custody prison but it is also approved to house inmates assigned to maximum control, intensive control, disciplinary segregation and safekeeping status inmates. And I should correct my stmt. that Polk houses 19 -- 25 y/olds and not 18 y/o's as I had said previously.

Foothills houses 18 -- 25 y/olds and also is a close-custody facility. He could go there. And there certainly may be more like those two as well.

Another case I followed is the one in Cary, NC, where the husband strangled his wife -- he said she had gone jogging, but he actually had already dumped her body in a cul-de-sac about a mile or two from their home. Brad Cooper, 38 y/o, convicted of 1st Deg Murder, is now lodging at Central, and he is also a winner of the LWOP award.

We'll just have to be patient!! And cross our fingers for Eve's and her family's sakes.

Laurence Alvin Lovette Jr. will spend life in prison after being convicted of first-degree murder in the shooting death of UNC-Chapel Hill student body president Eve Marie Carson more than three years ago.


The jury of seven men and five women deliberated for less than three hours before returning its verdict Tuesday morning.

Lovette, 21, sat motionless as the verdict was read. Carson's family elected not to speak at a subsequent sentencing hearing


Lovette was also found guilty on charges of first-degree kidnapping, first-degree armed robbery, felonious larceny and felonious possession of stolen goods. He was sentenced to 100-120 months in prison on the kidnapping charge and 77-102 months on the robbery charge. Both sentences will run consecutively.



I am glad that Lovette will never be allowed to terrorize another innocent ever again!

WRAL.s noon newscast will have remarks, etc., from some of the principals of the case. On now.

Use the same online entry or watch on TV.

A Good Day, folks, a good day!!

Prayers still needed for her family -- I'm sure their feelings are raw again after having gone through this, regardless of the verdict.

Thanks to matilda for keeping us updated!

I think that is interesting that Eve's parents chose to not speak before sentencing. I can understand that I think. While some family like to take that opportunity to talk about their lost love one, I would prefer to not do it in that forum. I'm sure they just wanted to be done with Lovette as fast as possible. They knew he would get a life sentence anyway so it really doesnt matter.
