AFFIDAVIT: UVA LAX PLAYER ADMITS TO HITTING VICTIM REPEATEDLY, LAWYER CLAIMS DEATH ACCIDENTAL

George Huguely (#11), the Virginia lacrosse player suspected of killing a member of the women’s team, told police he shook the victim and hit her head repeatedly against a wall, according to a court document in the case.

In spite of that, Huguely’s attorney Francis Lawrence, said he was confident the death was not intentional.

“We are confident that Ms. Love’s death was not intended, but an accident with a tragic outcome,” Lawrence told reporters. He did not elaborate and said he would have no further comment.

An affidavit filed with a search warrant said police found Yeardley Love, 22, face down in her bedroom with a pool of blood on her pillow, a large bruise on her face and one eye swollen shut.

Police said the suspect, George Huguely, told them he had an altercation with Love and had kicked in her door.
