The University of Virginia athletic department will honor the memory of slain lacrosse player Yeardley Love by retiring her jersey -- No. 1 -- in a formal ceremony at a home game against Penn State March 6.
Love was found by her roommate face down in a pool of blood.
Police records show Love and Huguely had recently broken off their dating relationship prior to her May 3 death.
Huguely was facing a first-degree murder charge in the death, but in January, prosecutors added new charges of felony murder, robbery of a residence, burglary, entering a house with intent to commit a felony and grand larceny. The original first-degree murder charge requires prosecutors to prove Huguely intended to kill Love when he broke into her apartment. The newly-added charge covers a killing during a felony like robbery or burglary.
Officials said Love died from blunt-force trauma to the head. Police said Huguely told them he saw Love bleeding after he had a fight with her and her head hit a wall.
Huguely's lawyers call the death "an accident with a tragic outcome."
Police said Huguely told them he took a computer from her apartment and dumped it into the trash on the night of their argument.
