Earlier today Aaron Hernandez was arrested and then shortly after released from the Patriots. A press conference was just held and details were finally released. He has been charged with murder and five gun-related charges. He plead not guilty. Odin Lloyd’s family was in the courtroom for Aaron Hernandez’s arraignment. Such a sad story all around.
In addition to murder, Hernandez has been charged with 1 count of carrying a gun without a license, 2 counts of possession of a large firearm, and 2 counts of firearm possession. He has pled not guilty.
The DA said Lloyd was shot multiple times in the groin, arm, side, chest and back with a .45 caliber semi automatic weapon before his body was discovered last Monday.
Prosecutors say there was communication between the victim and Hernandez just 10 hours before the victim’s death. They believe they have video showing Lloyd getting into Hernandez’ car around that time. They also say Hernandez had been texting Lloyd.
The DA said keys were found in Lloyd’s pocket to a car that had been rented by Hernandez.
