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.
