CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- The mother of slain University of
Virginia lacrosse player Yeardley Love has filed a $29.5 million
lawsuit against the former men's lacrosse player convicted of
murdering her daughter.
The Daily Progress reports that Sharon
Love filed the lawsuit against George Huguely V on Thursday in
Charlottesville Circuit Court. Love is requesting compensatory
damages for her 22-year-old daughter's death.
Huguely, of Chevy Chase, Md., was convicted in February of
second-degree murder and grand larceny in Love's death. A jury has
recommended that he serve 26 years in prison.
The lawsuit claims that the 24-year-old Huguely was responsible
for Love's death on May 3, 2010, and seeks a jury trial.
