A judge has ruled the public should be allowed to see portions of court orders that sealed search warrants obtained during the investigation into the death of a University of Virginia lacrosse player.

Charlottesville Circuit Judge Cheryl Higgins ruled Tuesday that heavily edited copies of three orders should be released to The Associated Press, the Daily Progress, the Richmond Times-Dispatch and The Washington Post.

The four sought the information after a judge sealed search warrants obtained in the investigation of Yeardley (YAHRD'-lee) Love's death. The judge also sealed the orders that sealed the warrants.

The 22-year-old was found dead last month. U.Va. men's lacrosse player George Huguely has been charged with first-degree murder.
