RALEIGH, N.C. – A North Carolina judge says he will decide later whether to unseal the autopsy report of University of North Carolina student body president Eve Carson.
Orange County Superior Court Judge Allen Baddour heard brief arguments Wednesday from the News & Observer of Raleigh. The newspaper has filed a motion asking that the report be publicly released.
The judge ordered another hearing June 11.
Baddour temporarily sealed the report pending his review to determine if releasing it would compromise the ongoing investigation into Carson's death.
The 22-year-old Athens, Ga., native was fatally shot March 5, and her body was found in Chapel Hill about a mile from campus.
The autopsy report could show how many times Carson was shot and identify the weapon used.
Authorities have charged 17-year-old Laurence Lovette and 21-year-old Demario Atwater with first-degree murder.
