George Huguely seeking new trial in death of Cockeysville native Yeardley Love

Appeals attorneys for a former University of Virginia lacrosse player convicted of killing his ex-girlfriend argue he was denied a fair trial by a judge who rushed the sensational case to jurors even when one of the defendant's attorneys fell ill.

The attorneys representing George W. Huguely V made the claim in a filing with the Court of Appeals of Virginia.
 
They also allege other errors involving jury selection in seeking a new trial for Huguely for the May 2010 beating death of Yeardley Love, who was 22.
 
The state has until Sept. 3 to file its response.
 
It declined to respond Thursday to Huguely's filing.
 
Huguely is serving a 23-year term in state prison.
 
Huguely and Love were both lacrosse players at U.Va. Both were from Maryland.
