(Newser) – The University of Virginia lacrosse player charged with the first-degree murder of Yeardley Love kicked her door open and argued with her, then "shook Love and her head repeatedly hit the wall," according to an affidavit released today. Love, 22, was found facedown in a pool of blood, with bruises on her face and her right eye swollen shut, the Richmond Times-Dispatch reports. Accused killer George Huguely's lawyer did not ask for bond at a hearing today; he is now due in court June 10.
