Posted: Updated:

Charlottesville, VA--Former University of Virginia lacrosse player George W. Huguely V has been sentenced to 23 years  in prison in the 2010 beating death of Yeardley Love.

A jury found Huguely guilty of second-degree murder and grand larceny in February, and it Judge Edward Hogshire heeded the sentencing recommendation.

Huguely has already served 2 years in jail, so he will be incarcerated for 21 years. It is possible for him to be released early for good behavior.

Huguely's defense team sought a 14-year sentence.

Huguely killed Yeardley Love, a 22-year-old suburban Baltimore woman, by beating her to death in a drunken rage. The incident was sparked when Huguely confronted Love about their on-again, off-again relationship.
