CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - The mother of slain University of Virginia lacrosse player Yeardley Love has filed a $29.5 million lawsuit against the former men's lacrosse player convicted of murdering her daughter.
The Daily Progress (http://bit.ly/KeDmsd ) reports that Sharon Love filed the lawsuit against George Huguely V on Thursday in Charlottesville Circuit Court.
Love is requesting compensatory damages for her 22-year-old daughter's death.
Huguely, of Chevy Chase, Md., was convicted in February of second-degree murder and grand larceny in Love's death.
A jury has recommended that he serve 26 years in prison.
The lawsuit claims that the 24-year-old Huguely was responsible for Love's death on May 3, 2010, and seeks a jury trial.
