DURHAM, N.C. — Superior Court Judge Jim Hardin decline to dismiss the case against murder suspect Laurence Lovette Jr. stating that the defense attorneys failed to prove prosecutors acted improperly on evidence disclosure.

Lovette is also one of two men convicted of the 2008 killing UNC student body president Eve Carson.
