Update: In February 2019, a judge granted new DNA testing in Mark Carver's case. Fundraisers on Facebook and Go Fund Me have been posted by Carver's defense team, The North Carolina Center on Actual Innocence, to raise the $5,000 needed for rush DNA testing in time for an evidentiary hearing scheduled to begin at 9:30 a.m., April 2, 2019, at the Gaston County Courthouse in North Carolina. Mark Carver himself will be present in court for the first time since his trial, and his release is possible. If you or someone you know talked to law enforcement at any time about Ira Yarmolenko's previous suicide attempts, please contact us or NCCAI to assist. Thank you!
