Washington, Aug 23: Former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez has been charged with first-degree murder, after it emerged that his friend was shot less than a mile from his North Attleborough home.
According to ABC News, Hernandez was arrested on Jun 26 and has been held without bail in a solitary cell at the Bristol County House of Correction.
Hernandez appeared in court at 2 p.m., as his lawyers presented motions to the judge and he did not speak, but he spoke the words ‘I love you’ to his mother, who was also in court, the report said.
The family of Lloyd, the deceased, who was a semi-pro football player, appeared in court wearing buttons emblazoned with his picture, the report added. (ANI)
