    Attorneys for George Huguely are appealing his murder conviction and 23-year prison sentence in the 2010 death of his ex-girlfriend, UVA lacrosse player Yeardley Love.  Former Solicitor General Paul Clement has joined Huguely's defense team, arguing issues with the trial's jury selection and that the jury wasn't properly instructed on the definition of "malice," a key in the second-degree murder charge.

    (Chapman) "There are no winners in this case.  There's nothing but loss everywhere."

    ...Prosecutor Dave Chapman after last February's verdict.  Love's family has filed a $30 million wrongful death suit against Huguely.
