Opening Statements and Witness Testimony
The jury today heard opening statements from the Commonwealth and the defense followed by testimony from the first witnesses.
In his opening prosecutor Dave Chapman told the jurors about an email Huguely sent to Yeardley Love that read in part, “I should have killed you.”
But defense attorney Francis McQ. Lawrence said Huguely only wanted “to talk, to make up, to work things out.”
Eight witnesses testified today, including Yeardley’s mother and sister, but the most lengthy testimony came from Yeardley’s roomate, Caitlin Whitely.
