BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) — The trial for a young woman charged in the killing of a 13-year-old girl has been postponed.
A Montgomery County judge on Monday granted Natalie Keepers a trial postponement. Keepers was scheduled to stand trial on March 27 for her alleged role in the killing of Nicole Lovell. Kepeers has been charged with being an accessory to first-degree murder and with concealing a body. Her co-defendant, David Eisenhauer, has been charged with first-degree murder, abduction and concealing a body. His trial has been postponed until November.
Eisenhauer is accused of stabbing Lovell to death in January of last year, and prosecutors say Keepers helped him plan the crime and hide the young teen’s body.
The judge is expected to rule on whether to allow television cameras into the trials.
