Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was charged with first degree murder and five other gun-related charges on Wednesday, as the prosecutor in court said Hernandez orchestrated Odin Lloyd’s “execution.”
Hernandez had been questioned in the killing of Lloyd, an associate of Hernandez who was found dead near Hernandez’s house. Much of the case was laid out in court as the prosecutor asked the judge that Hernandez be held without bail – a request that was granted.
Hernandez was transported by police to his arraignment at Attleboro District Court and arrived at the courthouse just before 2 p.m. Eastern. He was mostly expressionless as he heard the charges read in the courtroom, and didn’t change expression as he heard the prosecutor outline the case against him. That included the prosecutor saying there was surveillance video of Hernandez with a gun the night Lloyd was shot. The prosecutor asked that Hernandez be held without bail, and despite Hernandez’s lawyer Michael Fee’s argument that Hernandez is not a risk to flee, the judge ordered Hernandez be held without bail.
