Lawyers for a former University of Virginia lacrosse player convicted in the beating death of his ex-girlfriend have asked a judge for a hearing on a motion to have the case retried. George Huguely and his lawyers appeared in Charlottesville Circuit Court on Friday on a separate motion filed on behalf of several media outlets seeking to have the trial's evidence made public. Judge Edward Hogshire gave media attorney Robert Yates two weeks to come up with a proposal on the best way to make the evidence available.

A Virginia appeals court on Tuesday upheld the second-degree murder conviction of a former University of Virginia lacrosse player found guilty in the beating death of his ex-girlfriend, Yeardley Love, in May 2010. George W. Huguely V's lawyers appealed his 2012 conviction in the murder of Love, 22, who was a member of the U.Va. women's lacrosse team and a native of Cockeysville. Love was found beaten in her apartment with the door kicked in just weeks before she was scheduled to graduate from U.Va.

George Huguely V sits in the corner of a narrow, white room, at the end of a long wooden table, looking every bit the college athlete who just rolled out of bed after a normal night out — but for the bloody scratches ringing his right ankle. Hours earlier, he had used that leg to drunkenly kick in his girlfriend's bedroom door, he tells Charlottesville detectives, during a 64-minute recorded interrogation into the fatal beating of Cockeysville native Yeardley Love. The public got its first look at the video Tuesday, two years after it was made, on the morning of May 3, 2010, and nearly three months after Huguely was convicted of second-degree murder in Love's death at her University of Virginia off-campus apartment.

A procession of former University of Virginia lacrosse players and students, police officers and medical experts on Monday gave the most detailed account to date of the May 3 incident that left Yeardley Love dead at her off-campus apartment. According to testimony at a preliminary hearing, George Huguely, who is accused of murder, was badly intoxicated in the hours leading up to the death of his ex-girlfriend, a 22-year-old from Cockeysville. Much of the drinking had been done at a nearby resort, where members of the lacrosse team and their fathers competed in a golf tournament, teammate Kevin Carroll said.

For some of us, the pain of the dual tragedies of Yeardley Love and George Huguely is intensified by the fact that both children are so familiar to us. Raise your hand if you have spent any part of your child's life caught in the lacrosse whirlwind that sweeps through Maryland each spring. And summer. And fall ball. And the winter indoor league. It is something that ordinary civilians might not comprehend (though ballet parents or horse show parents might sympathize). Lacrosse can be a toxic mix of parental ambition and peer pressure.

George Huguely is guilty of murder. He went to the apartment of his on-again, off-again girlfriend, University of Virginia classmate Yeardley Love and, in a drunken rage, broke through her door, confronted her about infidelity, grabbed her, shook her, beat her and left her bruised and bloody. A jury in Charlottesville, Va., concluded that the killing was not premeditated, but jurors were not willing to accept the defense argument that it was an accident, or excused in any way by the 15 or more drinks Mr. Huguely had consumed that day. Jurors recommended that he be sent to prison for 26 years, longer than his life so far. That sentence may offer justice, but it brings no restitution.

A Virginia judge has dismissed a petition by four news organizations to unseal a court order in the trial of the University of Virginia lacrosse player accused of killing fellow student and Cockeysville native Yeardley Love. The court order sealed the records of searches of apartments and student George Huguely, who is being tried for Love's murder. The order itself was sealed, so the reason for sealing those search results is unknown. The request, filed by the Charlottesville Daily Progress, the Richmond Times-Dispatch, the Washington Post and the Associated Press, sought to unseal the court's order but Judge Cheryl Higgins denied it Wednesday on procedural grounds, according to news reports.

George Huguely IV, whose namesake son was convicted of second-degree murder this winter for beating University of Virginia student Yeardley Love to death while in a drunken rage, pleaded guilty Tuesday to driving while impaired by alcohol, according to Montgomery County prosecutors. Huguely IV, who lives in Potomac, was sentenced to probation in Rockville district court, spokesman Seth Zucker said in an email. It appears to be the elder Huguely's first conviction for drunk driving, according to Maryland's online court records.

Prosecutors fought claims Friday that George Huguely V — convicted of second-degree murder in the beating death of Yeardley Love, his University of Virginia girlfriend — received an unfair trial, filing a pointed response to a recent request for a new proceeding that said the defense "misses the mark. " The 37-page document, filed in the Charlottesville, Va., Circuit Court by Commonwealth Attorney Warner "Dave" Chapman, also addressed new allegations made by Huguely's attorneys earlier this week, claiming that Love's Cockeysville-based family considers her murder two years ago an accident.

In most big-time Division I college sports, a relatively small school like Loyola University Maryland doesn't have a chance. It has fewer than 4,000 undergraduate students, and the Jesuit school puts an emphasis on academic excellence, not training future pro athletes. No major television contracts, no rich alumni out offering no-show jobs to recruits - it's not even the best-known school in the U.S. with "Loyola University" in its name. But what Loyola University Maryland does have is a lot of really good and well-coached lacrosse player who this past weekend brought home from Foxborough, Mass., something the school has never seen before - a men's lacrosse national title.

The Sun's recent story about Sharon Love suing officials at the University of Virginia for the death of her daughter, Yeardley, at the hands of George Huguely got to the bottom of it all, sans the emotionalism, with the statement by The Sun's legal expert that the case would come down to liability ("Love's mother sues UVa. officials," May 4). It would seem, having read most of what the paper of record has reported on this sad saga, that Mrs. Love is guilty of what she accuses of others.

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.

I recently finished reading Susan Reimer 's column about the disgrace of lacrosse as a sport and the detrimental actions it encourages ("For lacrosse parents, a tragedy too familiar," Feb. 24). I don't know her background in lacrosse, but from what I have read I would guess she either has no experience or she had a personal experience that left her resenting the sport. The generalizations and stereotypes mixed throughout the column come across as a rather simplistic argument lacking any real thought.
