Attorneys File Appeal in UVA Lacrosse Case

  CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - Attorneys for a former University of Virginia lacrosse player are appealing his second-degree murder conviction in the beating death of his ex-girlfriend.
     George W. Huguely V's attorneys filed the notice of appeal Tuesday in Charlottesville Circuit Court, where he was convicted earlier this year in the May 2010 slaying of Yeardley Love. Huguely was sentenced in August to 23 years in prison.  
     Department of Corrections spokesman Larry Traylor said Huguely has been transferred to state custody. 
     Attorneys for the Chevy Chase, Md., defendant did not outline a basis for their appeal. A trial judge rejected a number of claims in August when Huguely sought a new trial, including improper jury instructions.
     Love was also a lacrosse player for U.Va. The 22-year-old woman was from suburban Baltimore.
