Odin Lloyd murder started Hernandez legal woes

Posted: Updated:
NORTH ATTLEBORO, Mass. (WHDH) - The trouble for Aaron Hernandez began when police found a body in an empty lot in North Attleborough last June, which was later identified as 27-year-old Odin Lloyd of Dorchester.

Police say Lloyd was shot five times, then left in the lot which is just miles from Hernandez' house.

The investigation quickly turned to the Patriots' tight end. Prosecutors say Lloyd and Hernandez knew each other and had been texting with each other the night of the shooting. They also say two other men were with Hernandez when the shooting occurred.

One of those men, Ernest Wallace, is due back in Fall River court to face new indictments in the murder. Prosecutors had originally accused him of being an accessory to murder, but they recently upped those charges.

Hernandez is being held without bail after pleading not guilty to murder in Lloyd's death.

Lawyers for Hernandez' cousin Tanya Singleton are also due in court on Thursday. She is accused of refusing to testify in front of the Bristol County grand jury in the case against her cousin.

Hernandez is due back in court later this month. A trial date has not been set yet.
