    Woman accused in Nicole Lovell death can't film hearing, judge rules

    Posted: Tuesday, May 3, 2016 5:05 pm - BY JACOB DEMITT | The Roanoke Times

    CHRISTIANSBURG — A judge in the Nicole Lovell case ruled Tuesday that a defendant will not be allowed to film her own preliminary hearing later this month.

    Montgomery County Juvenile and Domestic Relations Judge Robert Viar entered an order Tuesday denying the motion for the cameras after the judge heard arguments on the matter last month.

    Viar offered no explanation in the order beyond his denial.

    The decision comes after lawyers for Natalie Keepers — who has been charged in the teen’s death along with David Eisenhauer — argued traditional court audio recordings wouldn’t be good enough.

    Video is able to capture the "subtleties in the expression and mannerism of each witness" in ways audio recordings cannot, according lawyer John Robertson’s motion filed in March. Those subtleties, he argued, may be key to Keepers’ defense by showing a jury how someone changed their testimony at trial somewhere down the line.

    But Montgomery County Commonwealth’s Attorney Mary Pettitt, who is prosecuting the Virginia Tech students accused of plotting to kill Lovell, said her office was unable to find any other criminal case in Virginia that has allowed a defense team to film proceedings. She added that the use of stenographers and audio recording equipment is routine, and she would not object to that.

    Media usually requests this kind of video access, but Robertson was arguing for Keepers’ own cameras to be allowed into the May 20 preliminary hearing, while at the same time saying press cameras should be banned.

    According to the Montgomery County Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court clerk’s office, about eight news agencies have already requested photo access to the Keepers and Eisenhauer cases, including The Roanoke Times, WDBJ (Channel 7) and CBS' 48 Hours.
    Viar had not ruled on the press motions as of Tuesday afternoon.

    Two former Virginia Tech students face hearing Friday in slaying of Nicole Lovell
    Thursday, May 19, 2016 11:15 am

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]


    Prosecutors may reveal more details Friday in the case against two former Virginia Tech students accused of plotting to kidnap and murder a socially awkward 13-year-old girl who authorities say climbed out a window to rendezvous with them after midnight last January.

    David Eisenhauer, 18, is charged with kidnapping and first-degree murder in the stabbing death of Blacksburg seventh-grader Nicole Lovell. Natalie Keepers, 19, is charged with being an accessory to kidnapping and murder and with helping hide the body.

    Their hearing Friday will be in Montgomery County Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court.

    Commonwealth's Attorney Mary Pettitt said at a February bond hearing that the college students from Maryland met at a fast-food restaurant on Jan. 26 to plan Nicole's death, and bought a shovel and cleaning supplies at separate Wal-Mart stores. She said they decided together that Eisenhauer would cut Nicole's throat.

    She said Eisenhauer initially denied involvement when police found his messages on Nicole's phone, but eventually said he drove to the girl's home and watched her climb out of her window before they drove off to pick up Keepers. The prosecutor said Eisenhauer and Nicole last made contact by phone at 12:39 a.m. Jan. 27

    Pettitt said Keepers is adamant that she was not present at the killing. But once Nicole was dead, the prosecutor said, Keepers helped load her body into Eisenhauer's Lexus. Nicole's remains were eventually found in a remote spot in North Carolina, about two hours south of the campus.

    The biggest unanswered question surrounding Nicole's death remains: Why?

    Case against 2 students charged in Virginia teen's death moves to grand jury
    May 20, 2016

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    A judge ruled Friday that there was sufficient evidence against two former Virginia Tech students charged in the disappearance and death of a 13-year-old girl to refer the case to a grand jury.

    Prosecutors cited text messages found on a defendant's cellphone in the case against two former Virginia Tech students charged with kidnapping and killing 13-year-old Nicole Lovell.


    At a Friday hearing, prosecutors entered into evidence text messages taken from David Eisenhauer's cellphone. One message said that if the body isn't found for a week, "it will never be traced." Another mentioned engaging in "overkill," and a third said the young teen had been "blackmailing another guy too."

    Judge Robert Viar Jr. ruled there was sufficient evidence to refer the case to a grand jury.

    Eighteen-year-old Eisenhauer is charged with kidnapping and first-degree murder in the January stabbing death of the Blacksburg seventh-grader. Nineteen-year-old Natalie Keepers is charged with being an accessory to kidnapping and murder and with helping hide the body.

    Police: Suspect called herself 'sociopath in training'

    May 20, 2016 - 3:34 p.m. - By Larry O'dell, The Associated Press

    CHRISTIANSBURG, Va. (AP) - A former Virginia Tech student charged in the kidnap-slaying of a 13-year-old girl called her co-defendant a "sociopath" and referred to herself as a "sociopath in training" a police detective testified Friday.

    Also, prosecutors in the case against David Eisenhauer and Natalie Keepers introduced text messages taken from Eisenhauer's cellphone speculating about the body never being found and talking about engaging in "overkill."

    Eisenhauer, 18, is charged with kidnapping and first-degree murder. Keepers, 19, charged with being an accessory to kidnapping and murder and with helping hide the body of Nicole Lovell, a 7th grader who authorities say sneaked out her window early one morning last January to rendezvous with the older teens.

    Montgomery County Juvenile and Domestic Relations Judge Robert Viar Jr. found probable cause to send the case to a grand jury, which will meet in late July to determine whether the two former college students from Maryland should be indicted.

    Grand Jury indicts pair in Nicole Lovell death, trial dates set

    By [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] Published: July 26, 2016, 2:35 pm Updated: July 26, 2016, 4:31 pm

    CHRISTIANSBURG (WSLS 10) — A grand jury handed down indictments for David Eisenhauer and Natalie Keepers Tuesday in the death of 13-year-old Nicole Lovell. The Montgomery County grand jury also handed down a direct indictment for an additional charge of concealment of a body against Eisenhauer.

    Lovell was reported missing on January 27. Her body was found three days later in Surry County, North Carolina. A preliminary autopsy showed she’d been stabbed.

    Tuesday’s indictments come on the same day as Eisenhauer and Keepers appeared in Montgomery County Circuit Court court to have their respective trial dates pre-set.

    Motions hearings were set for February 8-9, 2017 at 9 a.m. for Eisenhauer. His jury trail is scheduled for March 6- 15, beginning at 9 a.m..

    Motions hearings for Keepers are set for January 17-20; her jury trial set for March 27-31. No motions have been set at this time, Commonwealth’s Attorney Mary Pettitt said; however, the dates are scheduled in advance in an effort to avoid potential trial delays.

    Natalie Keepers wants statements to police thrown out

    Published: December 16, 2016, 4:02 pm

    BLACKSBURG (WSLS 10) – A Virginia Tech student charged with accessory to the murder of a 13-year-old girl said her incriminating statements should not be used during her upcoming trial.

    Natalie Keepers filed a motion to have statements she made to police about her involvement in Nicole Lovell’s death thrown out, because she claimed her constitutional rights were violated.

    The motion stated that police did not read Keepers her Miranda rights until after almost a day of questioning at the police station. It went on to claim that police did not tell Keepers she could speak with an attorney until many of her statements had already been made to investigators.

    Recordings played during Keepers hearing in Montgomery County
    January 17, 2017, 1:35 pm

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Prosecutors spent much of Tuesday morning playing video and audio recordings during motions hearings for Natalie Keepers.

    Many of the recordings detail how she wanted to help police in the investigation following the 2016 disappearance of Nicole Lovell.

    Keepers said David Eisenhower forced her to help him and was detailed in her description of the chain of events.

    Blacksburg Detective Ryan Hite testified Keepers always maintained she was not present during the killing of Lovell.

    The first recordings played Tuesday were taken while police thought Keepers was an alibi witness for Eisenhauer and not “in custody,” police said.

    At one point, Keepers told investigators that she assumed the Lovell’s family knew. She asked, “Will my name be mentioned? I don’t want, like any angry parents coming out.”

    She went in to explain how Eisenhauer asked her to “give him 24-hour headstart” if police questioned her. “Because I know he was planning on running and changing his identity. An escape plan,” she said.

    He even made up a code, she said. “If I get one phone call,” she was recorded saying, “talk about vomiting or the first time we met.”
    They’ve asked the judge to allow keepers to wear her civilian clothing as well as allowing her to have a gluten free diet.

    The defense also asked for the police department’s training material.

    The judge ruled Keepers can wear her civilian clothing but threw out the training material request.

    The last motion filed is to move the case to a different venue. They claim the media coverage and the closeness in time to the trial of the other suspect in the case, David Eisenhauer, could create a problem.

    Second day of Natalie Keepers' motion hearing focuses on interrogation

    Wednesday, January 18th 2017

    MONTGOMERY Co., Va. (WSET) - The second day of motions for Natalie Keepers was focused on if she was interviewed or interrogated when she gave a statement to officials with the FBI and Blacksburg Police Department.

    Officers who interrogated the now 20-year-old charged in the murder of 7th grader Nicole Lovell say she was "talkative and helpful" during questioning.

    In the video of her questioning, Keepers cried "I don't want to go to jail. I don't want to get in trouble."

    Officer Ryan Hite said he couldn't remember if they closed the door to the interview room for privacy. Hite says he wore his sidearm during the interrogation, but doesn't remember if Agent Czernicka wore his.

    Hite testified that the duo originally set out to question Keepers because she was given as an alibi witness for fellow Virginia Tech student, David Eisenhauer. He said that he's not sure if he explained that to Keepers, but he is on audio and video tape telling Keepers that "You're not in any trouble whatsoever." Adding that his department is "working a thousand to two thousand different leads."

    While driving to the station, audio tapes reveal the conversation was fairly light. Keeper talked to officers about an internship she had done at NASA, and that he was hoping to intern at Lockheed Martin over the summer.

    Hite said the interrogation went on for 16 hours the first day and 12 hours the second.

    Keepers said in the video "I didn't think he was going to kill her."

    SNIP

    The motions hearing is expected to continue Thursday.

    David Eisenhauer, teen accused of Virginia girl’s slaying, wants trial moved

    Wednesday, February 8, 2017

    CHRISTIANSBURG, Va. (AP) — A former Virginia Tech student accused of killing a 13-year-old girl wants his upcoming trial moved.

    Attorneys for David Eisenhauer say in court documents that the 19-year-old won’t get a fair trial in Montgomery County or surrounding communities. They say they fear media coverage of the case has evoked "great passion and widespread prejudice."

    Eisenhauer’s change of venue request and other motions are expected to be considered during court hearings scheduled for Wednesday and Thursday.

    Eisenhauer is charged with first-degree murder, abduction and hiding the body of Nicole Lovell. Twenty-year-old Natalie Keepers is charged with being an accessory to kidnapping and murder and with helping hide Lovell’s body.

    Defense given more time to prepare for David Eisenhauer's trial

    Wednesday, February 8th 2017

    MONTGOMERY Co. (WSET) - The trial for a Virginia Tech student accused of murdering a 13-year-old Blacksburg girl will be later this year, the judge says.

    David Eisenhauer was in court Wednesday morning for a motions hearing.

    The trial for Eisenhauer has been continued after he waived his right to speedy trial for the second time. The judge says he'd like the trail over before the end of the year, and officials are looking for a date in the fall.

    Defense attorney Tom Anderson says media coverage will make it hard to find an impartial jury, and asked. The judge says the story has gotten national attention, and he can only move the trial so far out of the area.

    The judge says he'll consider moving the trial if they cannot find a jury in Montgomery County.

    Eisenhauer's attorney asked if potential jurors could be given a questionnaire individually. The judge said potential jurors will be brought in groups of 10 to 12, but no formal questionnaire will be given. For the trial, the judge is calling 120 jurors, the most that can be called.

    Next came the issues of cameras in the courtroom during trial. Commonwealth's Attorney Mary Pettitt says she has no problems with cameras being in courtroom, and for this case it "would be appropriate."

She also told police Eisenhauer feared the girl was pregnant.

    Trial set for man accused of killing Blacksburg teen

    Posted: Thu 3:53 PM, Mar 02, 2017

    A former Virginia Tech student is scheduled to go on trial this fall in the slaying of a teenage girl.

    The Roanoke Times reports that a 10-day jury trial for 20-year-old David Eisenhauer has been set for Nov. 6. Eisenhauer's trial was supposed to begin next week, but was postponed last month.

    Eisenhauer is charged with first-degree murder, abduction and hiding 13-year-old Nicole Lovell's body. Lovell was from the town of Blacksburg, where Virginia Tech is located.

    Twenty-year-old Natalie Keepers is charged with being an accessory to kidnapping and murder and with helping to hide Lovell's body. Keepers' trial is scheduled to begin on March 27, but her attorneys have also asked for it to be pushed back. A judge will consider that request Monday.

    Natalie Keepers granted continuance in case connected to Nicole Lovell's death

    Monday, March 6th 2017

    MONTGOMERY Co., Va. (WSET) -- The judge has granted Natalie Keepers a continuance in her case.

    Keepers, 22, is charged with accessory before the fact and concealing a body in connection to the murder of a 13-year-old girl.

    The judge said he will decide the new trial date when she's back in court on March 27.

    David Eisenhauer, 19, is charged with the first-degree murder of Nicole Lovell.

    Eisenhauer already got his trial date continued to Election Day, but the judge said he will have to ask the jury panel if they mind doing the trial on that day.

    The judge said he will also decide whether cameras will be allowed in court for both trials; the Commonwealth's Attorney said he didn't want cameras for the pre-trial, but didn't mind them at any other point and the defense does not want cameras in at all.

    Keepers’ lawyers want statements she made to the Blacksburg Police Department thrown out because they argue that investigators did not tell Keepers that she could remain silent or have an attorney present until more than a day into their questioning of her.

    Prosecutors argue that because Keepers was first questioned as an alibi witness for Eisenhauer and only became a suspect after incriminating herself, and because she signed statements waiving her rights to speak with an attorney, her words should be allowed as evidence.

    In [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], lawyers played recordings of Keepers’ statements in which she said that she had helped Eisenhauer plan Lovell’s death.

    Well this ought to piss Natalie Keepers, she asked the Judge back in May 2016, if she could film her own preliminary hearing, using her own cameras, but wanted media/press cameras to be banned, the Judge denied it.

    Nicole Lovell murder case: Eisenhauer trial moved back, Keepers' likely delayed as well
    By Mike Gangloff [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] 381-1669 Nov 6, 2017


    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]


    David Edmond Eisenhauer will begin a jury trial on Feb. 5 in the murder of Blacksburg middle-schooler Nicole Lovell, a judge said Monday.

    The new trial date apparently bumps Eisenhauer’s co-defendant, Natalie Marie Keepers, to a later date. Keepers already was scheduled to begin a jury trial Feb. 5 with the same judge.I’ll deal with them both at the same time as it comes up,” Montgomery County Circuit Court Judge Robert Turk said Monday near the end of a long hearing on pre-trial motions filed by Eisenhauer’s attorneys. Eisenhauer’s trial had been set to begin Monday, but it had been known for weeks that it would be delayed

    After the hearing, Commonwealth’s Attorney Mary Pettitt wrote in an email that Turk had signaled that both cases will not stay on the same date, but that a new schedule for Keepers case was not available.
    A staffer at the Blacksburg office of Keepers’ attorneys, Kris Olin and John Robertson, said Monday that they were not making statements.
