Former NFL Player Indicted on Murder Charges 8/23/13
FALL RIVER, Mass. - Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez has been indicted on a first-degree murder charge by a Massachusetts grand. The indictment charges Hernandez with the killing of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd, whose bullet-ridden body was found hear the Hernandez home.
Hernandez pleaded not guilty to murder and weapons charges in June. His lawyers say the case against him is circumstantial and they're confident he will clear his name.
Prosecutors say Hernandez orchestrated Lloyd's killing because he had talked to people Hernandez had problems with at a nightclub.
