ARLINGTON, Va., July 26 (UPI) — Two former Virginia Tech students were indicted Tuesday by a grand jury for the January death of a 13-year-old girl.
David Eisenhauer, 18, was charged with the first degree murder, abduction and concealing the dead body of liver transplant recipient Nicole Lovell. Eisenhauer’s fellow student, Natalie Keepers was charged with accessory to murder and concealing Lovell’s body.
The two will remain in custody until their trials are scheduled to begin in March 2017 and, if convicted, each faces in life in prison, the Montgomery County Commonwealth’s Attorney said.
A motive in the case has still not been announced by prosecutors, but Eisenhauer and Keepers allegedly plotted her killing, and reportedly, Eisenhauer had led Lovell into thinking the two would run away together romantically.
