George Huguely: One Year After Yeardley Love's Death, Huguely Awaits Trial
George Huguely Awaits February Trial Date On One-Year Anniversary Of Yeardley Love's Death
One year ago today, the body of University of Virginia lacrosse player Yeardley Love was found lying on a bloody pillow in her off-campus apartment, shocking the school and the sports world as a whole.
Now, one year later, the man accused of killing Love, her ex-boyfriend and fellow Virginia lacrosse player George Huguely, sits in prison awaiting his trial on six criminal counts, including felony murder and first-degree murder.
Police found Love's bloodied body in her apartment, and Huguely immediately became one of the prime suspects. The pair's relationship had often been tumultuous, and Huguely admitted to having a fight with the girl the night she was killed.
According to police reports, Huguely was unaware that Love was dead until hours later, when he sat in a police interrogation room being questioned by a detective.
Per the Washington Post's report on the trial:
“She’s dead, George, and you killed her,” Detective Lisa Reeves told him hours after Love’s body was found face down in a bloody pillow by her roommate May 3, the lawyers said.
Huguely responded that he did not believe the police and added: “There is nothing I did to her last night that could have killed her,” they said.
Huguely and Love's friends went on to recount the tempestuous relationship between the two athletes, while many witnesses said that Huguely had been seen drinking as early as 9 A.M. the day Love was killed.
The story of Love's death got pretty graphic during the trial, and her murder remains one of the most shocking and tragic sports stories in recent memory.
The trial itself is scheduled for February, and Charlottesville Circuit Court in Virginia has reportedly set aside two full weeks to hear the trial then. A hearing for motions has been scheduled for November of this year.
