Aaron HernandezCharged

Indicted for Lloyd murder

22 Aug, 2013

A grand jury indicts Hernandez and two other people connected to him, for first-degree murder and weapons charges.  He is currently being held without bail and faces life in prison, if convicted.  Some of the evidence against Hernandez includes a security-camera image of him holding a gun, video of a Nissan he rented near the crime scene, and text messages.  Carlos Ortiz, a friend who is being held on a gun charge, has told police that he stayed in the Nissan when Hernandez, Lloyd, and Ernest Wallace got out. According to court documents, Ortiz heard gunshots and then only Hernandez and Wallace got back in the car.  Wallace has been indicted as an accessory after the fact, and Hernandez’s cousin Tanya Singleton has been charged with criminal contempt for refusing to testify before the grand jury after she received immunity.
