Judge Denies Huguely's Request For New Trial

A Charlottesville Circuit Judge said there was overwhelming evidence to support Huguely's conviction for killing Yeardley Love, a University of Virginia lacrosse player.

A judge has denied a request for a new trial for George Huguely, the Chevy Chase man convicted of killing his ex-girlfriend, according to news reports.

In February, Huguely was of Cockeysville, MD. Both played lacrosse at the University of Virginia.

A hearing went forward in a Charlottesville courtroom Wednesday during which a Charlottesville Circuit Judge Edward Hogshire considered a defense request for a new trial.

"I think there was overwhelming evidence to support the conviction," Hogshire said at the end of the two-and-a-half-hour hearing, according to news outlets.
