George Huguely V is escorted to Charlottesville Circuit Court for a hearing Wednesday, Aug. 22, 2012 in Charlottesville, Va.   Charlottesville Circuit Judge Edward Hogshire rejected a defense motion to set aside Huguely V’s second-degree murder conviction and order a new trial in the May 2010 killing of Yeardley Love.    Huguely V was convicted in February of killing of Love in a violent encounter in her Charlottesville apartment after a day of binge drinking by Huguely.  In arguing for a new trial, attorneys for Huguely cited a series of errors before and during his trial.  His sentencing is Aug. 30. He faces up to 26 years in prison.
