McDonnell to discuss UVa. slaying

By Washington Post editors

University of Virginia President John Casteen and other university leaders plan to meet with Gov. Bob McDonnell (R) to discuss why college officials weren't notified that a student charged with the murder of his girlfriend had previously been charged with an alcohol-related offense off-campus, Virginia Politics reports.

UVA student George Huguely has been charged with the murder of lacrosse player Yeardley Love. Casteen said university officials did not know that Huguely had been previously charged with an offense.

The Post reported Thursday that eight players on the lacrosse team had faced such charges while in school, but state law does not require that university officials be alerted to criminal charges of students.
