Despite his life sentence in Eve Carson's murder, Laurence Lovette's attorney says her client intends to go to trial for the shooting death of Duke grad Student Abhijit Mahato.

In January 2008, Mahato was found dead inside his Durham apartment just blocks from Duke's campus.

According to court documents, Mahato's wallet, I-Pod, and cellphone were found on Lovette when he was arrested.

Earlier this week, Lovette was re-sentenced to a life sentence for killing UNC Student Body President Eve Carson.

Mahato was actually killed before Carson.
