   CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - A former University of Virginia lacrosse player is set to be sentenced Aug. 30 for the beating death of his ex-girlfriend.
 
     George Huguely V's sentencing date was scheduled Monday in Charlottesville Circuit Court, according to the clerk's office. The Chevy Chase, Md., man was found guilty of second-degree murder in February for the slaying of Yeardley Love in May 2010.
 
     The suburban Baltimore woman was Huguely's on-again, off-again girlfriend and a member of U.Va.'s women's lacrosse team. She was found dead in her Charlottesville apartment with injuries from a beating.
 
     Huguely faces up to 26 years on the second-degree murder conviction and a guilty finding on another count related to Love's slaying.
 
     Huguely's attorneys have already asked a judge for a hearing on a motion to have the case retried.
