CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) — A former University of Virginia lacrosse player convicted in the beating death of his ex-girlfriend is scheduled to learn his sentencing date.

Attorneys for George Huguely V are to appear in Charlottesville Circuit Court on Monday for a scheduling hearing. The Chevy Chase, Md., man was found guilty of second-degree murder in February for the slaying of Yeardley Love. The suburban Baltimore woman was Huguely’s on-again, off-again girlfriend and a member of U.Va.’s women’s lacrosse team.

Huguely faces up to 26 years on the second-degree murder conviction and a guilty finding on another count related to Love’s slaying.

Attorneys for Huguely have already asked a judge for a hearing on a motion to have the case retried.
