Only one week left.
On Friday, I was sent to cover the Lovette trial in Durham. Laurence Lovette is accused of murdering Duke University graduate student Abhijit Mahato in January of 2008. Lovette and Demario Atwater are serving life sentences for killing UNC-Chapel Hill Student Body President Eve Carson on March 5, 2008. This was a completely new experience for me. I've never witnessed a jury trial apart from watching "How to Kill a Mockingbird" and various crime shows. It was a weird feeling to be in that courtroom and watch Lovette interact with his attorneys. This wasn't a movie or a TV show; this was real life.
