The justices on Monday let stand a lower court ruling that upheld the conviction of George W. Huguely V in the beating death of Yeardley Love, a 22-year-old from suburban Baltimore. Huguely's slaying of Love occurred in May 2010 in Charlottesville.
Huguely's lawyers argued that he was denied the right to a fair trial after one of his attorneys became too sick to appear in court and the trial judge allowed proceedings to go ahead anyway.
The Virginia Supreme Court refused to hear Huguely's appeal last year.
