Prosecution: fiance lied to grand jury

16 Jul, 2014

In a filing, the prosecution lists more than 12 instances that contradict what Hernadez’s fiance, Shayanna Jenkins, told a grand jury that was investigating the shooting of Odin Lloyd. Prosecutors say that most of Jenkins’ testimony is not credible, including the part about getting rid of a box from the basement of her and Hernandez’s North Attleborough, Massachusetts, home. Jenkins told grand jurors she couldn’t remember where she threw out the box, which she put in a trash bag, covered with baby clothes. In the recent filing, prosecutors claim they have direct evidence that contradicts Jenkins’ testimony:

concerning how, why and the manner in which she removed the items from the home

Jenkins has pleaded not guilty to perjury, and her attorney, Janice Bassil, has begun the process of having the charge dismissed.
