Former New England Patriot Charged With Murder

Aaron Hernandez, former New England Patriot tight end, has been in the criminal spot light this past week. When he was suspected of murder, an arrest warrant was issued and on June 26, 2013 he was taken out of his home in handcuffs.

Hernandez is facing 1st degree murder charges including other charges involving possession of firearm/weapons charges.

Hernandez is being accused of murdering Odin Lloyd who was found buried about a mile from Hernandez's home 11 days ago.

His arraignment took place same day of his arrest and Hernandez remained silent as all 6 charges, including murder, were read to him.

The evidence that led to Hernandez's arrest was cell phone records and surveillance video from the area. The surveillance video that Hernandez had on his property was intentionally damaged. Prosecutors also pointed out the timeline of when Lloyd and Hernandez were together and how Hernandez allegedly shot Lloyd twice.

Hernandez's criminal defense attorneys argue that all the evidence is circumstantial and most of the allegations are inferences rather than statement of facts. They also point out that Hernandez has never been accused of a violent crime.

The investigation for the murder will continue and Hernandez was ordered to be held without bail as a flight risk.

He was released from the New England Patriots shortly after his arrest.
