RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Nearly 12 years after University of Virginia lacrosse player Yeardley Love was found dead, the man convicted of second-degree murder in her killing is headed back to court for a civil trial.

Jury selection is expected in Charlottesville Circuit Court Monday in a trial that will seek to hold George Huguely V liable in the death of Love.

The lawsuit filed by Love’s mother seeks $29.5 million in compensatory damages and $1 million in punitive damages.

Huguely is serving a 23-year prison sentence.

Many of the same witnesses who testified during the criminal trial are expected to testify again at the civil trial.
