Additional charges have been been filed by the Charlottesville Commonwealth's Attorney against George Huguely V, 23, the University of Virginia lacrosse player who had originally been charged with first-degree murder in the May 3, 2010, death of his estranged girlfriend, UVA women's lacrosse player Yeardley Love.

Huguely was charged in Charlottesville General District Court today with felony murder, robbery, statutory burglary, and larceny although he reportedly waived his right to appear in person or by video feed. He has been held without bond in solitary confinement at the Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail since his arrest shortly after the murder of Ms. Love. Huguely is being represented by Charlottesville attorney Francis McQ. Lawrence.

Recent reports have suggested Huguely would not be prosecuted for the death penalty but the additional charges could send him to prison for two life sentences. Today Huguely's attorney reportedly asked to postpone a January 21st hearing "on grounds that both the defense and the prosecution still have many pieces of new information to evaluate," a motion the judge granted.

Huguely is from a prominent Washington, DC, area family that owns a $1.2 million estate in Palm Beach, FL. He graduated from the Landon School in Bethesda and went on to play lacrosse for the University of Virginia.

After the death of Love, Huguely's troubled past came to light including a heated argument on a yacht off the coast of Florida, arrest for threatening a female police officer during a drunken brawl outside a fraternity house at Washington and Lee University in Lexington Virginia, and public fights with his then-girlfriend Ms. Love.

Love's violent death rattled the central Virginia college campus and those who knew her, and they reacted by refusing to let her memory be forgotten. On a warm, breezy May evening as dusk settled over central Virginia, thousands of grieving University of Virginia students and faculty members gathered for a candlelight memorial service in her honor. The One Love Foundation was established and raised $1 million to fund a turf field and full scholarships at Notre Dame Preparatory School where Ms. Love had played lacrosse and graduated. UVA heightened awareness of dating violence and now requires students to report arrests, a change brought about because the school was unaware of Huguely's past arrest until the tragic incident.

Some think this case will not go to trial and that there will be a settlement:

Huguely's family wants to keep the case from playing out in courts and is under the impression that a settlement is in the works, according to a Bethesda couple close to Huguely's father. The couple asked not to be named for this story. Attempts to reach Huguely's father, George Huguely IV, went unanswered. A settlement could be beneficial to the prosecution as well, according to Charlottesville defense attorney David L. Heilberg. "If [prosecutors] have a strong enough case, they will settle," said Heilberg, who is not involved in the case, but has practiced law in the area for three decades. "[Prosecutors] are getting what they want out of the case by agreement: Angling for Huguely to plead to something, whatever it might be, [for a sentence] not less than 40 years -- and then let a judge decide."
