The mother of a slain University of Virginia student is appealing a decision over access to insurance money.

Sharon Love filed the appeal this week in a Maryland Federal Court.

Love’s daughter, Yeardley, was murdered in 2010 by George Huguely. He was later convicted of second-degree murder.

Love is suing Huguely over her daughter's murder. Love wants access to Huguely's family's insurance payout, if a jury rules in her favor in a separate wrongful death lawsuit playing out in Charlottesville Circuit Court.

A Maryland federal judge ruled one of two insurance companies would not be responsible. The judge said Chartis Property Casualty Company would not have to pay, but State Farm Insurance would. The Chartis policy is worth $6 million while the State Farm policy is worth $300,000

The case will go to 4th Circuit Court of Appeals.

The wrongful death trial is expected to start July 30, 2018.
