RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Virginia's Court of Appeals has expanded the issues that can be brought up at appeal by a former University of Virginia lacrosse player convicted of killing his ex-girlfriend.

The court ruled late Friday that attorneys for George Huguely V can raise three additional issues as he seeks a new trial. The Chevy Chase, Md., man is asking that the court overturn his conviction of second-degree murder in the May 2010 beating death of Yeardley Love.

The appeals court already had agreed to hear arguments on two trial errors claimed by Huguely's attorneys. It was asked Tuesday to broaden the appeal to include other issues raised after his conviction.

Huguely attorney Paul Clement said in an email that he was pleased with the court's ruling.

Prosecutors did not immediately comment.
