UVA Lacrosse Murderer Huguely Wants New Trial

George Huguely, the University of Virginia lacrosse player who was sentenced to 23 years in prison in August for beating his girlfriend Yeardley Love to death in 2010, has requested a new trial. His lawyers contend that he was denied the right to the lawyer he wanted, who was sick during the trial. They also allege that the jury was biased against Hugely. Good luck finding a less biased one now. [WHSV]
