Ex-UVA Lacrosse Player Found Guilty

Jurors have found former University of Virginia lacrosse player George Huguely guilty of second-degree murder in the 2010 death of his former girlfriend, Yeardley Love. After a two-week trial, the jury reached a verdict that sentences Huguely to up to 40 years in prison. An expert testifying in the trial last Tuesday said blunt-force trauma killed 22-year-old Love. She was found dead hours after Huguely kicked through her locked bedroom door to confront her about cheating and their deteriorating relationship. Huguely himself did not testify in the trial, though the jury heard from him through a videotaped statement he gave to police on the night of Love’s death.
