CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) -- A physician says a slain University of Virginia lacrosse player did not have any pre-existing heart conditions that contributed to her death.
Dr. Renu Virmani testified Friday in the trial of George Huguely V, who is charged with first-degree murder in the May 2010 death of former girlfriend Yeardley Love.
Virmani says she examined Love's heart as part of an autopsy and found nothing that would have led to her death. Virmani says she has examined 9,000 hearts during her career.
Prosecutors have accused Huguely of slamming Love's head against a wall in a drunken rage, killing her.
Both Love and Huguely are from Maryland.
His attorneys maintain the woman died in part by taking the prescription drug Adderall and drinking alcohol.
They also have suggested efforts to revive her could have contributed to her death.
