Eve Carson's Killer Gets Federal Life Sentence

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- The man who admitted to killing the student body president at the University of North Carolina has been sentenced to life in prison plus 10 years for his crimes.

Demario Atwater learned his sentence Thursday in federal court in Winston-Salem.

U.S. attorney spokeswoman Lynne Klauer said Atwater got a life sentence for charges including kidnapping and carjacking resulting in death. The extra 10 years comes because he used a sawed-off shotgun.

Atwater pleaded guilty to first-degree murder and other charges in state court in May. His guilty pleas to both state and federal charges avoided a possible death penalty.

Atwater admitted to shooting Athens, Ga., native Eve Carson in March 2008. Her body was found about a mile from campus in Chapel Hill.

UGA Appeal of Green Suspension Denied

ATHENS, GA -- The NCAA ruled late Friday that UGA's appeal of the four game suspension of receiver AJ Green has been denied. As a result, the suspension will go forward.

Green was suspended last week by the NCAA for violating agent-benefit rules. Green sold his game jersey from last year's Independence Bowl to a sports agent, which NCAA officials said was the violation.

Officials at UGA had appealed the decision.

As a result of Friday's ruling, Green will not play in Saturday's Bulldogs home game against Arkansas.

 

Trusted Employee Accused of Stealing $200,000 from UGA

ATHENS, GA -- University of Georgia police say a longtime business manager for the university's Carl Vinson Institute of Government stole more than $200,000 from the school over a period of years.

Police say investigators took out felony warrants Wednesday charging Rebecca Adams Hill with two counts of racketeering for stealing the money between March 2005 and September 2009. Hill was being held at the Athens-Clarke County jail on Friday on $5,000 bail on each count.

A police report says Mark Foster, interim director of the institute's Governmental Services and Research Division, notified police in November that money was missing.

University police chief Jimmy Williamson says Hill falsified petty cash vouchers turned in to the university bursar's office.

A message left at Hill's home telephone seeking comment was not immediately returned.

 

Rabid Bat Bit UGA Student

ATHENS, GA -- Health officials in Clarke County say a bat that bit a University of Georgia student on campus had rabies.

Health department spokeswoman Sarah Peck said Wednesday that while the bite didn't break the student's skin, health professionals considered the bite to be a rabies exposure. She says the student received appropriate medical care.

Police say the student saw the bat crawling on a sidewalk outside the Student Learning Center early Sunday evening, and the bat bit him when he picked it up.

Peck says Athens-Clarke County Animal Control officers euthanized the bat, which later tested positive for rabies at the state Public Health Laboratory.

Athens Doctor Arrested on Rape Charge

ATHENS, GA -- An Athens urologist is being held at the Clarke County jail after authorities say he surrendered on charges of sexual battery and rape.

Athens-Clarke County Police Capt. Clarence Holeman says the allegations against 48-year-old Dr. Mark Adams stem from a complaint made by a patient in July 2009. Police say the charge was made after authorities received a report on evidence from the state crime lab. No other complaints have been made against Adams.

Capt. Holeman says a warrant was issued Wednesday and the doctor surrendered Thursday evening.

No bond was set at an initial bond hearing Friday morning.

The doctor's attorney, Ed Tolley, did not immediately return a telephone call seeking comment.

False Alarm Evacuates UGA Law School

ATHENS, Ga. -- A false alarm forced a temporary evacuation at a law school building on the University of Georgia's Athens campus Thursday morning.

Someone called police to report a sighting of a man who had previously made threats, according to a spokesman for UGA. Dean Rusk Hall was briefly evacuated. The man, it was later learned, was in jail.

The spokesman could not confirm the man's identity nor the nature of the threats. UGA Police are holding a press conference Thursday at noon to update the investigation.
