Jurors in the high-profile trial of former University of Virginia lacrosse player George W. Huguely V are to start deliberations Wednesday on whether to find the defendant guilty of first-degree murder or a lesser charge after two weeks of emotional testimony, graphic crime-scene pictures and challenging scientific evidence.
The high-profile murder trial of former University of Virginia lacrosse player George W. Huguely V will go to a jury Wednesday, following a weekend of dramatic closing arguments.
Prosecutors in their closing arguments on Saturday portrayed George W. Huguely V as a hulking male athlete kicking in a bedroom door and scaring a young woman half his size into cowering on her bed in a corner before he killed her.
The murder trial of George W. Huguely V was delayed for a second day because of an ill attorney, setting up a busy Saturday in which the defense is expected to conclude its case before closing arguments.
The murder trial of George W. Huguely V is postponed until Friday because one of his defense attorneys is sick.
Former University of Virginia lacrosse player George W. Huguely V "had no intent to kill" his onetime girlfriend, his defense attorney said Wednesday, urging jurors to consider manslaughter charges instead of murder in the first day of the high-profile trial.
