Court Affirms Slay Conviction Of U.Va. Lax Player

Posted: Updated:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - An appeals court has affirmed the second-degree murder conviction of a former University of Virginia lacrosse player who fatally beat his ex-girlfriend.
    
The Court of Appeals of Virginia on Tuesday rejected George W. Huguely V's appeal in the May 2010 slaying of Yeardley Love. Attorneys for the Chevy Chase, Md., man argued that Huguely was denied his 6th Amendment right to counsel when one of his lawyers fell ill during his February 2012 trial in Charlottesville.
    
Huguely's appeal also raised questions about jury selection and instructions.
    
A 22-year-old member of the U.Va. women's lacrosse team, Love was found dead in her apartment after Huguely kicked a hole in her bedroom door and beat her after a day of heavy drinking, according to trial testimony. She was from suburban Baltimore.
