New England Patriots Aaron Hernandez Charged With Murder
Murder and 5 weapons counts is what police have charged former New England Patriots tight end, Aaron Hernandez with. All are believed to be in connection with the death of Odin Lloyd. His body was found in an industrial park about a mile from Hernandez's home.
Hernandez was arrested Wednesday morning, and not even 2 hours later, released by the Patriots.
His plea is not guilty.
"The charges were revealed Wednesday afternoon in Attleboro District Court after Hernandez was arrested at his sprawling North Attleborough home.
The investigation started more than a week ago after Lloyd, a semi-pro football player and an acquaintance of Hernandez's, was found slain in an industrial park in North Attleborough, on the Rhode Island line not far from where the Patriots play.
Lloyd's family says he and Hernandez were friends and that Lloyd's girlfriend and Hernandez's fiancee are sisters."
Authorities say Hernandez was upset with Lloyd after the two had a dispute at a nightclub a few days before Lloyd was shot.
