CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WTVR)–Convicted murderer and former University of Virginia lacrosse player George Huguely V has won the right to an appeal.

In 2012 he was found guilty of murdering ex-girlfriend Yeardley Love. But the court is granting an appeal after his attorneys argued a juror was not impartial and should have been dismissed.

And they added Hugely was denied the right to counsel when one of his lawyers became sick during his trial in 2012.

Huguely is currently serving a 23-year prison sentence.
