RICHMOND, Va. -- A federal appeals court has denied a former University of Virginia lacrosse player’s appeal of a decision preventing his early release from prison.
George Huguely V is serving a 25-year sentence in the 2010 slaying of his ex-girlfriend.
He was convicted of second-degree murder in the killing of Yeardley Love, who also played lacrosse at U.Va.
The Daily Progress reports that a three-judge panel of the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals dismissed Huguely’s latest appeal, and then a full panel of judges turned him away when he sought a rehearing.
He remains set for release in 2030.
