A judge on Thursday refused to grant bail to a Virginia Tech student charged in the killing of a 13-year-old, and prosecutors said the woman told police she was "excited" to be a part of something "secretive."
Natalie Keepers, 19, is charged along with another student, David Eisenhauer, 18, in the killing of Nicole Lovell, whose body was found in North Carolina three days after she disappeared from her Virginia home.
"She killed someone she never even met," Montgomery County Commonwealth Attorney Mary Pettitt said in court Thursday,
Now this college kid's attorney is saying that she needs to have bail, so that she can get treatment. ... She killed someone she never even met, and felt excited about it…
A preliminary cause of death is stabbing, officials said. The charge of accessory before the fact indicates Keepers was not present during the killing. Eisenhauer is charged with first-degree murder and abduction.
After the murder, Keepers and Eisenhauer allegedly went to a Walmart in Wytheville to buy cleaning supplies with the girl's body in the trunk of the car, Pettitt said.
No where does it say she claimed to be threatened or coerced.
