By DENA POTTER Associated Press Writer

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) Gov. Bob McDonnell is meeting with University of Virginia President John Casteen to discuss changes in state law that Casteen believes could prevent crimes like the murder of a university lacrosse player.

Yeardley Love was found dead in her off-campus apartment a week ago. Her ex-boyfriend George Huguely was charged with first-degree murder in her death. Huguely played for the men's lacrosse team.

Huguely had had several run-ins with law enforcement officials in Virginia and other states, including a 2008 charge of resisting arrest and public intoxication.

Casteen said he was shocked that the university never found out about the arrest. He said he would like to see laws changed so that schools could find out if their students were arrested.
