The Chevy Chase, Md., man was convicted in February of second-degree murder in the 2010 death of Yeardley Love of suburban Baltimore. Love was a member of the women’s lacrosse team.

An Aug. 22 hearing is set on another defense motion seeking a new trial. Huguely’s attorneys claim prosecutors erred by not telling them that Love’s mother was planning to sue Huguely.
