(HILLSBOROUGH) -- Laurence Lovette was found guilty of first-degree murder in the death of University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill student body president Eve Carson in 2008.  Lovette was sentenced to life in prison without parole.

He was also found guilty on charges of first-degree kidnapping, first-degree armed robbery, felonious larceny and felonious possession of stolen goods. Lovette was not eligible for the death penalty because he was a minor when the crime was committed.

Eve Carson's parents were present in the Orange County courtroom.  They declined to address the court before Lovette was sentenced.  They did communicate through District Attorney Jim Woodall that they wanted to thank the court and the jury.

Lovette is one of the two men convicted in Carson's death. Demario Atwater pleaded guilty last year and he was sentenced to life in prison.
