All Huguely hearings postponed to April

By Mary Pat Flaherty

Former University of Virginia lacrosse player George Huguely V, 23, of Chevy Chase, will face an April 11 hearing on the five additional charges recently filed against him in the May 3 death of his former girlfriend and fellow lacrosse player Yeardley Love of Cockeysville.

The postponement, posted Thursday morning, follows a continuance posted Wednesday on the first-degree murder charge Huguely originally faced after the body of Love, 22, was discovered in her off-campus apartment.

A hearing had been set for Friday on all of the charges in the case.

Huguely was arrested within hours of a roommate finding Love's body and, according to police, told detectives he had fought with Love and taken a computer from her residence on the night she died.

Five more charges were added to his case on Jan. 7: felony murder, robbery of a residence, burglary, entering a house with an intent to commit a felony and grand larceny.

Huguely is jailed without bond in the regional jail in Charlottesville.

I understand that the 6th Amendment guarantees defendants a speedy trial but how about as much concern and consideration for the Love family in getting all of this over and done with. They'll never have closure or the spirit to move forward as long as this idiot and his Mommy's and Daddy's money continue to drag out the process.

Okay folks - let's get moving on locking up this murderer and throw away the key. Why does our judicial system allow for all of this manuvering etc. The parents of the murder victim will have to keep this fresh in their minds - not that the fact that their child is gone will ever go away because it never will..and I know first hand because I lost an adult child myself. I agree with the other posters here...money and wealth talk....and it is a shame!

The guy is in jail without bond. Why does it matter?

Don't you guys get it? A plea deal fell apart and now the prosecutors are filing heavier charges.
