George Huguely Murder Trial: Jury Deliberations Begin In Trial Of Ex-Virginia Lacrosse Player

Deliberations have begun in the case of George Huguely and prosecutors are looking for a first degree murder charge.

Jury deliberations have begun for the murder trial of former Landon and Virginia lacrosse player George Huguely who is accused of killing Yeardley Love. According to SB Nation, the prosecution have put forth a number of possible charges that the jury could convict Huguely of if they feel the first degree murder charge is too strict.

Although Huguely is charged with first degree murder, the court has given the jury several lesser charges they could elect to choose from in their final decision. These include second degree murder, felony murder, voluntary manslaughter and involuntary manslaughter. Due to Huguely already having served 21 months in jail, if he is convicted on one of the lesser charges he could go free almost immediately. However, the more serious charges could result in life in prison.

Huguely is from Chevy Chase, Maryland and attended the Landon School in Bethesda before continuing on to play at Virginia. Deliberations are likely to carry on for a while considering the complexities of the case and the subject matter that they are dealing with.
