Md. Man Convicted In Girlfriend’s Beating Death Seeks To Expand Appeal

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) — Lawyers representing a former University of Virginia lacrosse player are heading back to court in a bid to broaden the grounds of an appeal of his second-degree murder conviction.

George W. Huguely V is serving a 23-year sentence for the slaying of his former girlfriend, Yeardley Love, in May 2010.

His lawyers are seeking to reintroduce six points to the appeal. They include the trial judge’s refusal to sequester jurors during the sensational trial in Richmond.

The Daily Progress reports that a three-judge panel of the Virginia Court of Appeals will hear arguments on the request Tuesday.

The court had agreed in April to hear the case.

Love was from Cockeysville, Md., a Baltimore suburb. Huguely is from Chevy Chase, Md.
