George Huguely V is escorted to Charlottesville Circuit Court by members of the Charlottesville Sheriff's Office for the start of his trial in Charlottesville, Va, Thursday, Feb. 9, 2012. Huguely, is charged with the murder of fellow University of Virginia senior Yeardley Love.

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.
