A judge has issued a gag order over the attorneys involved in the case, preventing them from speaking publicly during the course of the trial.
In addition to Huguely's videotaped interview following the discovery of Love's body, another key piece of evidence expected to be used are the previously redacted emails between Love and Huguely surrounding their break-up.
The medical examiner who conducted Love's autopsy is expected to testify and jurors will weigh that testimony against an expert the defense will bring in, according to Goodman.
In addition to medical experts, Love's mother Sharon and sister Lexie are expected to testify as well as Love's roommate, teammates and friends who knew about her relationship with Huguely.
Huguely's arrest in Love's case was not his first run-in with the law. He had been arrested before for resisting arrest and public intoxication, charged with reckless driving and involved in a domestic dispute with his father on the family yacht.
Huguely is being held without bond in the Albermarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail.
