CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – A judge is weighing arguments that a former University of Virginia lacrosse player convicted in the slaying of his former girlfriend did not receive a fair trial.
George V. Huguely V of Chevy Chase, Maryland, is serving a 23-year sentence for the 2010 alcohol-fueled attack on Yeardley Love of suburban Baltimore. She was found dead in her Charlottesville apartment.
The Daily Progress (http://bit.ly/1RNBTfr) reports that an attorney representing Huguely asked a judge Wednesday to overturn his client's 2012 second-degree murder conviction.
Jonathan Sheldon told a Circuit Court judge Huguely had not received a fair trial.
The 28-year-old Huguely has argued that he received ineffective representation because one of his attorneys fell ill during his trial.
