Suspect in UNC Student Death Gets Another Indictment

Posted April 7, 2008

— One of the men charged with the death of UNC Student Body President Eve Carson last month was indicted on two unrelated charges Monday afternoon.

A Durham grand jury indicted Demario James Atwater on charges of:

  • possession of firearm by a felon and
  • possession with intent to sell or deliver schedule VI controlled substances and possession of drug paraphernalia.

It is not clear if the charges are related to his arrest for Carson's murder.

    Does it even matter what he is charged with? Did not seem to worry him last time.

    Sounds familiar. He was charged with the exact same thing..possession of a firearm by a felon.. in 2007 and let out on probation to roam the streets. I will never understand why someone has to die before the court system gets their act together.
