Mark Carver was convicted on March 21, 2011 for the murder of UNC-Charlotte student Irina Yarmolenko and sentenced to life in prison.  He has always maintained his innocence, and the North Carolina Center on Actual Innocence has been investigating his case since 2013.  After the Center filed a Motion for Appropriate Relief on his behalf, Mr. Carver was granted an evidentiary hearing, which is scheduled to begin on April 2, 2019.  The judge has recently granted our request for additional DNA testing.  In order to obtain the results in time for the hearing, we need your help in raising $5,000 for the fees necessary to rush the testing. We strongly believe in Mr. Carver's innocence, and we appreciate any contribution you can make!

Thank you to everyone who contributed to make it possible for us to conduct expedited DNA testing in Mark Carver’s case. Unfortunately, between the amount of evidence that was used up in 2008 testing and degradation, the lab was unable to obtain any DNA results. Steps like this are necessary steps for us to be able to take in our efforts to bring innocent people home as quickly as possible. Although it will take longer, we look forward to proving Mark’s innocence at his hearing the first two weeks of April.
