One of the two Virginia Tech students accused of killing a 13-year-old girl was denied bond on Thursday in a court hearing that revealed more details about a killing that prosecutors said was premeditated.
Lovell went missing from her home on Jan. 27, and her body was found three days later.
Eisenhauer was arrested on Saturday and faces charges of first-degree murder and abduction. Keepers was arrested on Sunday and faces charges of improper disposal of a body and accessory after the fact in the commission of a felony. Both are engineering students at Virginia Tech.
The prosecutor, Mary Pettit, told the court that the two plotted over dinner how they would abduct and kill Lovell. Pettit said Keepers had been “excited to be part of something secretive and special.”
Investigators said they believe Eisenauer and Lovell had an inappropriate relationship, which she had been planning to expose, according to CNN.
