CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va (CBSDC) — The prosecution has rested in the trial of George Huguely V, the former University of Virginia lacrosse player accused of killing his ex-girlfriend.

Prosecutor Dave Chapman called about 50 witnesses over one week before concluding his presentation to jurors Wednesday in Charlottesville Circuit Court.

Huguely is accused in the May 2010 death of 22-year-old Yeardley Love. She was found in her Charottesville apartment bruised and bloodied.

The prosecution portrayed Huguely as a heavy drink in, jealous ex-boyfriend who broke into Love’s bedroom and assaulted her by banging her head against a wall. She died of blunt force trama.

The defense is preparing to make it’s case for Huguely, and is expected to ask that the first degree murder charge be dropped.
