State Student in Court Wednesday

Posted April 2, 1997 12:00 a.m. EST

— The North Carolina State student accused of killing his pregnant girlfriend, then dumping her body in the woods, was in court Wednesday for a probable cause hearing.

Edwin Lawing said he didn't kill Lacoy McQueen. The former Shaw student's remains were found by a road crew in Vance County last month, almost a year after she was reported missing.

Police believe Lawing killed McQueen after the couple argued about her pregnancy.
