Jamie Reidy is shocked by the jury’s decision to convict lacrosse player George Huguely V only of second degree murder in the slaying of his former girlfriend, Yeardley Love.
From Time.com in the case of George Huguely V, who was found guilty of Second Degree Murder of his former girlfriend, Yeardley Love.
Jurors found a former University of Virginia lacrosse player guilty of second-degree murder Wednesday in the slaying of his ex-girlfriend that was fueled by jealousy over her relationship with another lacrosse player.
As a former college wrestler, I share Cameron Conaway’s frustration over the defense attorney’s description of his jock client’s behavior.
Regardless, the trial’s outcome leaves me hollow.
Person A sends Person B a jealous email stating, “I should have killed you.”
One week later, Person B is found dead. The police easily determine that Person A is the killer.
The jury hits Person B with a second-degree murder conviction.
What. The. Fuck.
Which part of the first-degree murder connect the dots game am I missing?
