Jury: Man Guilty Of 2nd Degree Murder Of Ex-girlfriend, Both Were UVA Lacrosse Players

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) -- Jurors in the trial of a former University of Virginia lacrosse player have found him guilty of second-degree murder in the slaying of his ex-girlfriend.

A jury returned the verdict Wednesday in the trial of 24-year-old George Huguely V for the May 3, 2010, beating death of Yeardley Love, a 22-year-old suburban Baltimore woman who had a volatile relationship with the Chevy Chase, Md., defendant.

Huguely could be sentenced to five to 40 years on the guilty verdict, returned after nine hours of deliberations.

Prosecutors said Huguely killed Love in a drunken, jealous rage fueled by her relationship with a North Carolina lacrosse player.

Love was found battered, bleeding and bruised in the bedroom of her Charlottesville apartment.
