Chevy Chase, MD, resident George Huguely is scheduled to be sentenced on Aug. 30 for killing his ex-girlfriend Yeardley Love—of Cockeysville, MD—in 2010.
Huguely and his lawyers had requested that the sentencing be pushed back to after Oct. 1, but a Charlottesville Circuit Court judge denied that request, The Washington Post reported.
On Wednesday, Aug. 22, a separate hearing will be held regarding Huguely's defense team's motion to seek a new trial.
"Huguely’s attorneys claim prosecutors erred by not telling them that Love’s mother was planning to sue Huguely," The Post added.
On Tuesday, June 5, "Huguely's lawyers filed a motion claiming Charlottesville Commonwealth's Attorney David Chapman broke the law by withholding information about Love's mother and sister, who testified in the criminal trial." The defense lawyers "claim Chapman knew the two were planning to file a civil lawsuit against Huguely," NBC Washington reported in June.
