University of Virginia student George Huguely has been arrested for murder of Yeardley Love, 22, of Baltimore County. Lacrosse player Yeardley Love was found dead in her apartment at Charlottesville on Monday at around 2:15 am.
It was her roommate that first discovered the lifeless, physically tortured body and informed the police about the matter.

When police arrived at the crime scene, the body of Yeardley Love had visible signs of torture and trauma. Later they were informed that George Huguely was Love’s former boyfriend. Huguely is also a member of the Lacrosse team. He was immediately put into questioning and booked at the Regional Jail.
