    An expert testifying in the trial of George Huguely said Tuesday that a blunt-force trauma killed Yeardley Love, who had once dated Huguely. Huguely is on trial for killing Love, a University of Virginia lacrosse player who died in May 2010. The prosecution has laid out a case portending that Huguely punched Love after a fight and then threw her against a wall. Christine E. Fuller, the expert on the stand, said examinations of Love’s brain shows that a punch or hit against a wall certainly could have killed her.
