Huguely was found guilty in February of 2012 of murdering fellow University of Virginia senior Yeardley Love.

Former University of Virginia lacrosse player George Huguely, convicted of killing his ex-girlfriend, have been denied a rehearing on his appeal.

Attorneys for Huguely now say they are considering other options, including an appeal to the Virginia Supreme Court. The lawyers were seeking a full hearing before the Court of Appeals of Virginia, but that was rejected. His conviction was re-affirmed in March.

Huguely is serving a 23-year prison term in Virginia for the May 2010 beating death of Yeardley Love, a 22-year-old co-ed from suburban Baltimore.

Huguely's appeal was based on several issues related to his 2012 trial in Charlottesville, Va. They included questions about jury selection and the absence of one of his attorneys when she became ill during the trial.
