(CBS/AP) CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - Former University of Virginia lacrosse player George Huguely V will be sentenced Aug. 30 for the beating death of his ex-girlfriend Yeardley Love.
Huguely's sentencing date was scheduled Monday in the Charlottesville Circuit Court, according to the clerk's office. The 24-year-old was found guilty of second-degree murder in February for killing Love in May 2010.
Love was Huguely's on-again, off-again girlfriend and a member of U.Va.'s women's lacrosse team. She was found dead in her apartment with injuries sustained from a beating.
Huguely faces up to 26 years on the second-degree murder conviction and a guilty finding on another count related to Love's death.
Lawyers for Huguely have already asked a judge for a hearing on a motion to have the case retried.
