Media in court over U-Va. slaying docs

By Mike McPhate

A group of media outlets hopes to find out why search warrants were sealed in the investigation into the death of a University of Virginia women's lacrosse player.

A hearing on the issue is scheduled Tuesday in Charlottesville.

A judge sealed search warrants in the investigation of Yeardley (YAHRD'-lee) Love's death. The judge also sealed the orders that closed the search warrants from public review. The media companies trying to obtain those orders are The Associated Press, the Daily Progress, the Richmond Times-Dispatch and The Washington Post.

The 22-year-old Love was found dead in her home last month. U.Va. men's lacrosse player George Huguely is being held on a first-degree murder charge.
