The University of Virginia lacrosse player accused of killing his girlfriend has been indicted on six felony charges, including first-degree murder.

The ruling means that the case will go to trial next February. 

George Huguely of Chevy Chase, Md., is charged in the May 3, 2010, killing of 22-year-old Yeardley Love, of Cockeysville, Md.  Besides the first-degree murder charge, Huguely was also indicted on robbery, burglary, statutory burglary and grand larceny charges.

Evidence against Huguely was laid out in an unusually long preliminary hearing to determine whether there was enough merit for the case to go to trial.

Investigators said that Huguely kicked the door in to Love's apartment in Charlottesville, and killed her by slamming her head against the wall.

His lawyer said that he had only wanted to talk to Love that day, and that her death was unintentional.

"I never did anything that could do that to her, I swear to God," Huguely said to investigators.  "I refuse to believe she's dead."
