The Washington Post is reporting that the videotaped statement former UVA lacrosse player George Huguely gave to police and was aired at his February murder trial will be made available for public viewing. Other exhibits from the trial of the murder of Cockeysville-native Yeardley Love will also be made available.
The viewings will be at 9:30 a.m. May 15 and 1:30 p.m. May 16 in a Charlottesville Circuit courtroom. No recording, reproduction or replay of the exhibits will be allowed.
In February, The Washington Post, Gannett Co. Inc. and other media asked for access to the exhibits. An attorney acting on behalf of Love’s mother and sister, Sharon and Lexie Love also has asked for access to exhibits in connection with a civil suit filed April 26. The suit seeks $30 million in damages from Huguely alleging he showed ”reckless indifference” and “negligence” in Love’s death.
