The family of Yeardley Love, the college senior who was murdered by ex-boyfriend George Huguely, said today that they were shocked when they found out about Huguely's violent past and had urged Yeardley to get a restraining order against him.

Love, 22, was killed by Huguely, 25, in a drunken rage on May 3, 2010, just weeks before she was to graduate. Both played on the University of Virginia's elite lacrosse teams.

In an appearance on ABC's "Katie" today, Love's mother, Sharon Love, and her sister Lexie Love, recalled their growing concern over Yeardley Love's former boyfriend, a worry that Yeardley seemed to dismiss.
