Lovette is facing another first-degree murder trial. He was arrested and charged with first-degree murder in the Jan. 18, 2008 shooting death of Abhijit Mahato hours after his arrest in the Eve Carson case.

Mahato, 29, a doctoral student at Duke University, was found shot to death inside his apartment a few blocks from Duke's campus.

THe appeal is already in motion--on the grounds the jury was prejudiced by Atwater's testimony.

SOmetimes the evidence is greater than the player...

This was assumed because there were six (6) asterisks and six asterisks are usually meant to cover up a six letter word. Given that the defendants in this case are African-American, it doesn't take a rocket scientists to assume or conclude which word was being blanked out.

Let's focus on this beautiful young woman, full of promise, no longer with her family. Sad, pointless, random crime.

Why would these young men get a gun, kidnap this girl, and think this was a good idea? Why? How did they get a gun? Did they commit other crimes prior to this?

Life in prison at age 17. That is sad. A life of promise. How could these things be predicted, and prevented? Some sort of intervention at school? Maybe these killers lives should be studied, to see any common/coorelations, and provide intervention to other young men with similar issues, before they destroy their lives, and other lives.

These 2 are "bad seeds" with criminal histories. They were on probation when they committed this crime. Instead of robbing her, they took pleasure in taking their time to torture her and brutally kill her. Eve suffered.

And to the bicoastal guy, you must not be a rocket scientist if you only know one six letter word. Look in the mirror, maybe it's you who has issues. And that's all I'll say on that issue.

Um, I think this is the first that I've heard about the defendents race.
My first instinct would have been a word like f****r.

So much for giving people the benefit of the doubt.

This would have been a great death penalty case and then let the guy plea to life no parole. Case closed, no need to drag her family through years of this garbage.

I actually believe there are some crimes when even the death penalty just doesn't do enough for justice. This ****** is case in point..

According to testimony at the trial, Eve Carson asked Laurence Lovette and Demario Atwater to pray with her before they shot her five times and left her lying in the middle of the street.

The plea deal for Atwater saved him from the death penalty and gave him life in prison without parole ... due to Lovette's age the death penalty wasn't on the table. This is pure evil. Lovette has two murders under his belt and only 17 years old.

Hey, I just call it like I see it. Yes, there are many six letter words, but given the crime that was committed, the race of the victim, and the race of the two defendants, there are only a couple of negative six letter words that one might feel the need to blank out; and only one seems to fit logically in this situation. Feel free to deny all you want, but don't insult my intelligence.
