Deadline for Huguely Appeal Decision

Charlottesville, VA - The Court of Appeals of Virginia is expected to make a decision Tuesday about an appeal filed by George Huguely's attorneys.

The former UVA lacrosse player is convicted of killing his ex-girlfriend Yeardley Love, 22.

Attorneys for Huguely claim he was denied a fair trial by a judge who rushed the case to jurors even when the defendant's attorney became ill.

Huguely's attorneys filed the claim last month.

Huguely is currently serving a 23-year sentence in state prison.
