George Huguely's second-degree murder appeal has been delayed.

On Monday Huguely's defense team filed a request with the Virginia Court of Appeals for an extension to file transcripts from the case. The transcripts were due at the end of this month.

The case will not be officially transferred to Richmond until December.

Earlier this year Huguely was convicted of killing his ex-girlfriend Yeardley Love.

Huguely is now serving a 23-year prison sentence.
