RICHMOND, Virginia — The Virginia Supreme Court has refused to hear the appeal of a former University of Virginia lacrosse player convicted of killing his ex-girlfriend.

George W. Huguely V of Chevy Chase, Maryland, is serving a 23-year prison term in Virginia for the May 2010 beating death of Yeardley Love, a 22-year-old from suburban Baltimore.

According to court records, the justices refused without explanation to hear Huguely's appeal Wednesday. The Virginia Court of Appeals previously declined to reconsider its decision upholding his conviction. In that appeal, Huguely's lawyers raised issues involving jury selection and the absence of one of his attorneys when she fell ill during the trial.
