CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - Prosecutors say the second-degree murder conviction of a former University of Virginia lacrosse player in his ex-girlfriend's slaying shouldn't be set aside.
Charlottesville Commonwealth's Attorney Dave Chapman on Friday filed a response to defense counsel's motion to set aside the jury's verdict because of supposed at least eight pre-trial and trial errors.
Jurors in February found George Huguely, of Chevy Chase, Md., guilty in Yeardley Love's beating death and grand larceny. The suburban Baltimore woman was a member of U.Va.'s women's lacrosse team.
The Daily Progress reports (http://bit.ly/Lx5ywB) that Chapman defended the procedures in the case and rejected the need for a retrial.
The lawyers are scheduled to appear in court June 29 to argue their respective motions. Huguely is scheduled for sentencing in August.
