E-mails show fight before Love slain
Former Virginia lacrosse players George Huguely and Yeardley Love got into a physical altercation and exchanged e-mails in the days leading up to Love’s May 3 death, according to search warrant affidavits released Wednesday.
Huguely, a 22-year-old Chevy Chase native who had been a member of the men’s lacrosse team at Virginia, is charged with first-degree murder in the death of Love, his former girlfriend of more than two years. A hearing in Huguely’s case has been set for Oct. 8.
According to the documents, a friend of Love's told Charlottesville police that she witnessed an altercation between Love and Huguely “a few days before Love’s death,” according to the affidavit.
The documents also state that police conducted a search of two laptop computers seized from Huguely's off-campus apartment May 3, as well as a search of Love's computer.
During a search of Love’s computer police discovered fragments of an email they believe was sent in response to an email sent by Huguely.
An unidentified witness also told police that Huguely had sent an e-mail to Love about their previous altercation.

Newly released documents show that Yeardley Love sent George Huguely an e-mail referring to a fight the two had shortly before her death. Police found the email after requesting a search of Huguely's computers, which they had already seized.
Love was found dead in her apartment May 3. Her ex-boyfriend and fellow lacrosse player, George Huguely, is charged with her death.
The documents also show that Love's computer was found in a Dumpster; Huguely told police he had thrown it in a trash bin after leaving her apartment the night she died.
