Courtney Lockhart Arrested - Police say they have arrested 23 year old Courtney Lockhart and charged him with capital murder for the shooting death Tuesday night of Auburn University student, 18 year old Lauren Burk.
Police announced at a 10 a.m. news Saturday news conference that Lockhart was arrested during a traffic stop yesterday in Phenix City. In addition to capital murder, Lockhart has also been charged with three other capital counts: kidnapping, robbery and attempted rape.
Burk, a freshman from Mariette, GA, was shot and killed Tuesday night in Auburn. Her burned car was later found on campus. A multi-law enforcement agency task force has been investigating the case since Wednesday.
Officials this morning said it may be a year before Lockhart is brought to trial, because the case wll likely be taken before a grand jury.
A memorial service for Lauren Burk is scheduled for Monday at 3:00 p.m. on the Samford Lawn at Auburn University.
