— 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.
