CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) University of Virginia students are being asked to take time away from studying for final exams to attend a memorial service for lacrosse player Yeardley Love.

The memorial comes as police continue their investigation of the 22-year-old Cockeysville, Md., woman's death. Love's battered body was discovered early Monday morning in her Charlottesville apartment.

Police have arrested 22-year-old George Huguely of Chevy Chase, Md. Huguely is a member of the university's men's lacrosse team.

Charlottesville Police Chief Tim Longo did not shed any new light on the investigation Wednesday. He said Love's body had been to her family.

Student body president Colin Hood said Wednesday night's memorial is a chance for students to reach out and comfort each other.
