December 09, 2010

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — Police in Charlottesville are seeking e-mails and text messages a University of Virginia lacrosse player sent to another student he is accused of killing.

The Daily Progress reported Thursday that police have requested a search of George Huguely's smart phone for correspondence mentioning Yeardley Love, who was also a lacrosse player at U.Va.

The request was contained in an affidavit related to a search warrant.

Huguely, of Potomac, is charged with first-degree murder in the death of his ex-girlfriend. The 22-year-old from Cockeysville, a graduate of the Saint Paul School for Girls, was found dead in her off-campus apartment May 3.

Investigators have already searched Huguely's and Love's computers and found fragments of correspondence.

Huguely has a Jan. 21 preliminary court hearing.
