UPDATE: 10:00am - After pleading 'no contest' earlier this morning, David Eisenhauer was found guilty of all charges in the murder of Nicole Lovell.
David Eisenhauer has pleaded no contest to murder, kidnapping, and concealing a dead body charges in connection to the murder of Nicole Lovell.
The plea comes after three days of testimony in what was planned to be a 10 day trial.
At the opening of Eisenhauer’s murder trial on Tuesday, February 6, his attorney, John Lichtenstein, tried to shift the jury’s focus to his friend and alleged accomplice, Natalie Keepers.
Eisenhauer is accused of making a “secret date” with Nicole Lovell in 2016 after meeting the teen through Kik, an instant messaging app.
On Jan. 27, 2016, Eisenhauer stabbed Nicole 14 times and cut her throat because he was worried his relationship with the underage girl would be exposed, prosecutors said.
He could get life plus 15 years.
