A lawyer representing Sharon Love was in Charlottesville Circuit Court Thursday asking for access to the evidence used in George Huguely's murder trial. Love intends to file a wrongful death lawsuit against Huguely for his role in the death of her daughter, Yeardley.
A lawyer representing a number media outlets was also in court asking for the same thing: evidence. The attorney asked that journalists be allowed to view crime scene photographs and listen to Huguely's video-taped statement that he made to police, then publish "non-sensitive" materials for public consumption.
As for Love, before she files her lawsuit against the 24-year-old convicted murderer, she too wants access to trial evidence. Her lawyer argued that Love and her family will treat the evidence with care and won't give it out for public use.
Outside of court, Love's lawyer provided no further comment.
The judge didn't rule on either motion and won't until he returns from vacation in mid-May.
