RICHMOND, Va. (WVIR) -

It's a waiting game now for George Huguely and his legal team. Virginia's highest court will decide whether or not to hear the appeal of his murder conviction.

Huguely is currently serving a 23-year sentence for the death of his ex-girlfriend Yeardley Love in 2010.

His lawyers argue his rights were violated during his 2012 trial. The Supreme Court will decide whether or not to grant a full review. NBC29's legal analyst says that could take a few days or a few weeks.

If the Supreme Court says no, Huguely will have 90 days to file a petition for writ of certiorari. If it says yes, the case will get set down for a full briefing and argument.
