Court hears appeal of former U.Va. lacrosse player convicted of killing ex-girlfriend in 2010

The Court of Appeals of Virginia is weighing a request for a new trial by a former University of Virginia lacrosse player who was convicted in the 2010 beating death of his ex-girlfriend.

The three-judge panel heard arguments Wednesday from the state and an attorney for George W. Huguely V, who was convicted in February 2012 in the slaying of Yeardley Love of suburban Baltimore.

Most of the one-hour hearing focused on a Sixth Amendment question: whether Huguely was denied counsel when one of his attorneys became ill during his trial in Charlottesville.

Attorney Paul D. Clement also raises three other issues in seeking a new trial for Huguely, who is from Chevy Chase, Md.

Huguely is serving a 23-year prison term for Love's slaying.
