Friday was the deadline for filing a motion for a new trial in the Huguely murder case, and as expected, the defense did just that. George Huguely was convicted in February of second-degree murder and grand larceny in the May 2010 beating death of Yeardley Love. The jury recommended a total sentence of 26 years in prison. The prosecution must respond by June 8th, and the defense will have to respond to the prosecution's filing by June 22nd. A motions hearing is scheduled for June 29th, and Huguely is scheduled to be sentenced by Judge Ted Hogshire on August 30th. Huguely has already been in jail for two years.
