    Yeardley Love and George Huguely

    It could be at least another week before a Virginia judge decides whether to release the medical records of Yeardley Love.

    Love, who played lacrosse at the University of Virginia, was killed last year in her apartment.  George Huguely, 24, who had a relationship with Love, is accused in her death.

    Police say George Huguely killed Love by slamming her head against her  apartment wall in May of 2010.   

    Huguely's attorneys want to see her medical records.

    They contend that Love may have died from an irregular heartbeat caused in part by the combination of prescription drugs and alcohol.
