Former U.Va. athlete seeking new trial

     RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Attorneys for a former University of Virginia lacrosse player convicted in the beating death of his ex-girlfriend are taking the case to the Virginia Court of Appeals.
 
     Lawyers for George W. Huguely V on Tuesday filed a petition for appeal with the court arguing that constitutional and procedural errors entitle him to a new trial.
 
     The Maryland man is serving 23 years in prison after being convicted of second-degree murder in the May 2010 slaying of 22-year-old Yeardley Love. She was found dead in her Charlottesville bedroom after Huguely confronted Love after a day of heavy drinking.
 
     The petition argues that Huguely was denied the right to his chosen lawyer, the right to a fair and impartial jury, and other violations.
 
     Virginia has 30 days to respond to the petition.
