Hearing for George Huguely delayed
A hearing for George Huguely V, the former University of Virginia lacrosse player accused of murdering fellow student and lacrosse player Yeardley Love, has been reset for Oct. 7, Huguely's defense lawyer said Tuesday.
Huguely, 22, of Chevy Chase, remained jailed Tuesday in Charlottesville.
He had been scheduled to appear Thursday in Charlottesville District Court for a preliminary hearing in the May 3 death of Love, 22, of Cockeysville.
Neither Huguely's lawyer, Francis McQ. Lawrence, nor the office of Commonwealth's Attorney Warner D. "Dave" Chapman, both of Charlottesville, would comment on the reason for the change.
As of Tuesday morning, the cause and manner of Love's death remain pending, according to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Richmond.
Huguely told police that on May 3, he kicked in Love's locked bedroom door at her off-campus apartment and argued with her, repeatedly shaking her as her head hit a wall, according to statements police made in seeking a search warrant for DNA samples from Huguely.
Huguely has been held without bond in Albermarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail since his May 4 bond hearing was continued. After that delay, Lawrence said Huguely did not dispute the late night visit to Love but told reporters: "We are confident that Ms. Love's death was not intended but an accident with a tragic outcome."
Huguely withdrew from the university. Like Love, he had been a senior and like her, a member of the university's nationally ranked lacrosse teams.
