CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) A search of the apartment of a man charged with killing a University of Virginia lacrosse player has uncovered a red-stained jersey and a letter to the victim.

The Charlottesville Daily Progress reports the items were taken from 22-year-old George Huguely's apartment during a search on Monday by Charlottesville police.

Huguely has been charged in the death of 22-year-old Yeardley Love. The U.Va. senior's battered body was found early Monday morning by her roommate and the roommate's boyfriend.

The Progress reports that police recovered two laptop computers, a notebook and other items from Huguely's apartment. Huguely is also a U.Va. senior and university lacrosse player.

Police say the two had been involved in a relationship that had ended.
