Judge throws out 35 pieces of evidence

3 Oct, 2014

Stating there was insufficient evidence and the warrant police had to search  Hernandez’s home was not for a wide-ranging search, Judge Susan Garsh will not allow 35 items to be used as evidence in the murder trial. She writes in an eight-page order:

There are no facts in the affidavit that tie either Hernandez or Ortiz in any way to the killing of Lloyd. The bald fact that the police may have conducted a lengthy investigation does not give rise to an inference that Ortiz’s cell phone may have some evidentiary value in furthering that investigation.
