Virginia’s Court of Appeals is weighing a request for a new trial by a onetime University of Virginia student-athlete who was convicted of the death of his former girlfriend. The three-judge panel heard arguments Wednesday from attorneys who represent the Commonwealth and the latest legal team for George Huguely. A Charlottesville jury convicted the 26-year-old Huguely (pictured) of second-degree murder following the May 2010 death of Yeardley Love. Most of the hearing dealt with whether Huguely was denied counsel when one of his original attorneys became ill. The illness happened near the midpoint of Huguely’s February 2012 trial in Charlottesville Circuit Court. Huguely is now an inmate in the Virginia prison system.
