Huguely Sentenced 23 Years In Love Death

According to the Charlottesville Newsplex:

A judge has formally sentenced George Huguely to 23 years in prison.

After closing arguments, Huguely addressed the court saying: "Mrs. Love and Lexie, I'm so sorry for your loss. I hope and pray you may find peace."

Three witnesses testified for the commonwealth in the sentencing process in determining the time that Huguely would serve in the murder of his former girlfriend, Yeardley Love, in May 2010.

Judge Edward Hogshire reduced the initial sentence for the former UVa lacrosse player from the 26 years that the jury recommended to 23 years on the 2nd degree murder charge and one year for larceny.

Those charges are to be served concurrently along with 3 years of supervised release...

Here's the story from the Newsplex when the Huguely family was denied a new trial a week ago...
