Unseen evidence in Yeardley Love trial to go on display
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va (WTVR) – Previously unseen evidence in the George Huguely murder trial will soon be made available to the public. A Charlottesville judge announced Tuesday that on May 15th and 16th “non-sensitive” evidence from the murder trial of Yeardley Love will be released.
Among the evidence: Huguely’s hour-long videotaped statement to police, pictures of the crime scene, the diagram of Yeardley Love’s apartment and text messages exchanged between the two former lovers.
The judge still has not decided whether photos of love’s body will be included. A ruling over whether more sensitive materials will be put on display is expected later this month.
In February, a jury found the former University of Virginia lacrosse player guilty of second-degree murder and grand larceny in love’s death. Huguely will be sentenced in August. The jury has recommended 26 years.
The first viewing will be at 9:30 a.m. on May 15. The second will be at 1:30 p.m. on May 16.
Last month Love’s family filed a $30 million wrongful death suit against George Huguely.
