Shock fell over the University of Virginia campus yesterday when students and faculty learned Yeardley Love, 22, a member of the lacrosse team, had been killed. Police charged George Huguely, a member of the #1-ranking men’s lacrosse team, in her death.

Police responded at 2:15 a.m. on Monday morning to a possible alcohol overdose at Love’s apartment, after her body had been found by her roommate. But police said Love had “obvious physical trauma” to her body, although it did not appear a weapon was used. Huguely, who was found at his apartment nearby, was questioned and charged with first-degree murder.
