SHARE Attorney for George Huguely says Yeardley Love's death was an accident

The death of University of Virginia women’s lacrosse player Yeardley Love was an accident, according to a lawyer for George Huguely, a men’s lacrosse player for the Cavaliers.

Huguely was arrested and charged with murder Monday after Love’s body was found in her apartment.

Until more information becomes available, it is our hope that no conclusions will be drawn or judgments made about George or his case, defense lawyer Francis Lawrence said Tuesday, reading a statement to reporters outside a courthouse. We are confident that Ms. Love’s death was not intended, but an accident with a tragic outcome. Lawrence did not elaborate and said he would have no further comment.

Police have said that the Huguely and Love had been in a relationship.
