Former Patriots star tight end Aaron Hernandez is set to go to trial for the alleged murder of Odin Lloyd on Oct. 6. Hernandez still faces two murder charges from a drive-by shooting outside of a Boston nightclub that occurred in 2012.
According to the Boston Herald, Hernandez’s trial for the Boston double murder is tentatively set to begin in May 2015.
According to the Boston Herald, “The disgraced tight end laughed and smiled [Tuesday] as he spoke with his attorney Charles Rankin while a relative of one of Hernandez’s alleged victims sobbed loudly moments before the hearing started in Suffolk Superior Court. The female relative had to briefly leave court before returning. Hernandez and the woman were only feet away from each other at the time. Hernandez’s demeanor changed once the double-murder hearing began.”
Hernandez is accused of gunning down victims Daniel Abreu and Safiro Furtado after Abreu allegedly spilled a drink on Hernandez and didn’t apologize.Powered by Sidelines
