-Deadly Love -

George Huguely – the University of Virginia lacrosse player charged this week with the first-degree murder of Yeardley Love, who played women's lacrosse for the school – informed authorities that he had a violent confrontation with her, according to a search warrant affidavit.
"George Huguely admitted on May 3, 2010 that he was involved in an altercation with Yeardly Love and that during the course of the altercation he shook Love and her head repeatedly hit the wall," Charlottesville Police Det. Lisa Reeves wrote in a sworn statement used to obtain a search warrant, reports CNN.
The 22-year-old athlete, who is 6'2" and about 205 lbs., was arrested hours after a roommate found Love's body Monday morning in her off-campus Charlottesville apartment. A relationship between Huguely and Love, also 22, had just ended.
Love, who was 5'3" and 130 lbs., had "a large bruise on the right side of her face which appears to have been caused by blunt force trauma," according to the document. She was discovered inside the residence with her face down in a pool of blood.
According to Reeves's affidavit, Huguely admitted to kicking open the door to Love's bedroom after he found her apartment door unlocked, says CNN
