It is a scene that plays out in Maryland families every year: children learning lacrosse at the hand of a guiding parent. At the age of 5, Yeardley Love picked up her first lacrosse stick and began playing with her father. At 6, she joined a team through Cockeysville Rec. At 9 years old, she knew she wanted to go to the University of Virginia and play lacrosse there. Years later, her dream would come true. But last week, Love's other childhood dreams were cut short. At the Cathedral of Mary Our Queen in North Baltimore, more than 2,000 people gathered Saturday to mourn Love, a 22-year-old senior and Cockeysville native who was slain in her off-campus apartment on Monday in Charlottesville, Va. An ex-boyfriend and Virginia men's lacrosse player, George Huguely, 22, of Chevy Chase, was arrested and charged with first-degree murder in her slaying.

Regarding the recent Senate renewal of the Violence Against Women Act ("Showdowns loom on Capitol Hill," April 26), it's important to remember the tragic life and death of Yeardley Love, who was left battered, bruised and bleeding alone in her room by an abusive ex-boyfriend. I went to the same high school as Yeardley. Notre Dame Preparatory School. We wore the same uniform, walked the same halls, wore the same ring and experienced everything else NDP had to offer. Although I didn't know her personally, I still feel connected to her. What happened to her could easily have happened to me or any other NDP girl.

An attorney for the one-time University of Virginia lacrosse player who was convicted last year of killing his ex-girlfriend, Yeardley Love of Cockeysville, argued Wednesday that he should get a new trial. Attorney Paul Clement told the Virginia Court of Appeals in Richmond that George Huguely V, now 26, effectively was denied the right to counsel during his trial because one of his lawyers became ill and could not appear in court to question witnesses. Despite the illness, the trial judge allowed the trial to proceed.

The only current Tigers player in Charlottesville that day, LaMonica still carries the impression with her three years later, so she is a big proponent of the Tigers' upcoming “One Love Weekend” to promote relationship violence awareness and sexual assault prevention.

George Huguely V, the former University of Virginia lacrosse player convicted last year of drunkenly beating to death his girlfriend Yeardley Love, has asked the Virginia Court of Appeals to review his case. Huguely's attorneys argued in a petition filed Tuesday that the court violated Huguely's constitutional rights. Love, the victim, was from Cockeysville. "The circuit court's response to the intense media interest was to rush through the trial, rather than to ensure that the accused received a fair trial," Craig S. Cooley and Paul D. Clement, the attorneys, wrote in the petition.

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.

Attorneys for George W. Huguely V are appealing his second-degree murder conviction for beating his ex-girlfriend to death in May 2010. Huguely, a former University of Virginia lacrosse player from Chevy Chase, was convicted in February and sentenced in August to 23 years in prison for the death of Yeardley Love, 22, of Cockeysville.

Before the sentencing, Huguely's legal team had asked the judge to overturn the verdict, arguing that the trial had been unfair and that the jury received improper instructions.
