CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - A federal hearing has been set over whether a convicted murderer's family's insurance policies would have to pay out. The hearing is set for Tuesday, January 10, in Maryland.

In 2012 George Huguely was convicted of second-degree murder for the death of University of Virginia lacrosse player Yeardley Love.

He is being sued in Charlottesville by Love's mother, Sharon, for $6 million for her daughter's death in May 2010. 

Huguely's family lives in Maryland. Love’s mother wants two insurance companies on the hook if a jury rules in her favor in a separate wrongful death lawsuit.

Huguely is currently serving a 23-year sentence.
