Updates in the Yeardley Love Murder Trial

0 Written by: | Wednesday, Nov 09, 2011 12:00am

You probably remember, but a quick overview of the facts:  The UVA lacrosse player and Notre Dame Prep grad was found dead in her Charlottesville apartment; her ex-boyfriend, George Huguely, admitted that he kicked in her door and shook her so hard that her head repeatedly hit a wall. But (according to Huguely’s lawyers), that’s not what killed her; instead, it was an irregular heartbeat from a combination of Adderall and drinking. Huguely’s lawyers won a pre-trial victory this week when the judge agreed to let them have access to all of Love’s medical records. The judge also banned cameras from the courtroom. Expect a lot more depressing news to emerge once the trial begins in February.

Meanwhile, Love’s family has set up a charity in honor of Yeardley. The One Love Foundation offers scholarships and other programs to “keep Yeardley’s spirit alive in others by promoting strength of character and service.” Next week, Notre Dame hosts a book reading with bestselling memoirist Kelly Corrigan (author of Lift and The Middle Place), with proceeds benefitting the foundation. And don’t forget about today’s Domestic Violence Symposium, which we told you about earlier this week.
