CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- The mother of slain University of Virginia lacrosse player Yeardley Love has filed a $30.5 million lawsuit against the former men's lacrosse player convicted of murdering her daughter.

Huguely, 24, of Chevy Chase, Md., was convicted in February of second-degree murder and grand larceny in Yeardley Love's May 2010 death. A jury has recommended that he serve 26 years in prison. He is scheduled to be sentenced Aug. 30.

Attorneys for Sharon Love and Huguely did not immediately return phone messages left at their offices on Thursday.

Sharon Love, who lives in suburban Maryland, alleges that Huguely "failed to use ordinary care, leading to an accident for which he was responsible that resulted in the injuries and death of Love," according to court documents.

Huguely also "acted with such indifference to Love that his conduct constituted an utter disregard of caution amounting to a complete neglect of safety for Love," the lawsuit said.
