CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — The trial of a former University of Virginia lacrosse player accused of killing his ex-girlfriend is nearing the end of its first week.
Jurors in the trial of George Huguely V are scheduled to hear more testimony Friday in Charlottesville in the death of women's lacross player Yeardley Love.
Huguely is accused of first-degree murder in Love's May 2010 death, allegedly slamming her head against a wall. His attorneys maintain the Maryland woman died in part by taking the prescription drug Adderall and drinking alcohol.
During testimony Thursday, witnesses described a volatile relationship, with each accusing the other of infidelity. One witness testified that he saw Huguely put Love in a chokehold months before she was found slain.
