Nicole Lovell’s death was plotted at a restaurant, official says

Christiansburg, Virginia (CNN) – Two college students sat at a fast-food chain restaurant, not to discuss homework, but allegedly to plot the killing of a 13-year-old girl.

Virginia Tech students David Eisenhauer and Natalie Keepers also allegedly planned how to dispose and conceal the body of seventh-grader Nicole Lovell over that late January meal at the Cook Out in Blacksburg, Virginia.

The details came to light in a courtroom Thursday as prosecutor Mary Pettitt argued against granting bail to Keepers.
