Eisenhauer pleads "no contest" to all charges, is promptly convicted


David Eisenhauer is charged in the death of Nicole Lovell of Blacksburg. The former engineering student had killed Nicole Lovell in January 2016 with the help of his girlfriend, Natalie Keepers, because he feared the minor girl would expose their improper relationship.

After Eisenhauer entered his pleas Friday, Pettitt told reporters the justice system is "incapable of healing this loss for Nicole's family, Nicole's friends or the community". A piece of paper containing the girl's address on it was also presented as evidence, which was found in Eisenhauer's dorm room and prosecutors showed the evidence that proved Eisenhauer's DNA was found under Lovell's fingernails and her blood was found in the trunk of his vehicle. The Roanoke Times reports the judge said Wednesday he won't make a ruling until Eisenhauer's lawyers call her to testify. The girl said Eisenhauer told her that the incident occurred "because he couldn't keep it in his trousers", Pettitt said.

Lovell's body was found around along N.C. Highway 89 in Surry County, which is northwest of Winston-Salem in North Carolina. Investigators said she kissed her mother goodnight and climbed out her bedroom window to go meet Eisenhauer.

"It was taxing to go through such a gruesome murder", Johnson said.

A second former Virginia Polytechnic Institute student, Natalie Keepers, who is charged with being Eisenhauer's accomplice and helping to hide Lovell's body faces trial later this year after pleading not guilty. He faces a sentence of up to life in prison.

Weeks hugged Pettitt after Friday's proceedings. "She was a great and handsome girl".
