Patriots’ Aaron Hernandez Back to Court: NFL News at YouWager

Aaron Hernandez, former New England Patriots tight end, is scheduled to make it back in an Attleboro, Mass., court at 2 p.m. ET today for a probable cause hearing in the murder case against him in the death last month of Odin Lloyd.

Nevertheless, YouWager experts have learned that if the prosecution files for a continuance the hearing won’t take place today. This due to the fact that it might do so it doesn’t have to present all of its evidence.

As a matter of fact the prosecution may look for an indictment from the grand jury at a later date.

Moreover, today’s hearing will likely have the prosecutors continue to look at Hernandez’s possible involvement in a double homicide in Boston back in 2012.

Boston police believes there’s a strong connection between the 23 year-old and the double homicide after he came under scrutiny in the June 17 killing of Lloyd.

At the current time the ex- NFL player, who pleaded not guilty to a first-degree murder charge in the Lloyd case, is being held without bail at the Bristol County House of Correction.

Furthermore, two alleged accomplices in the Lloyd case, Carlos Ortiz and Ernest Wallace, also are in police custody.

New England’s coach Bill Belichick is scheduled to meet with reporters at Gillette Stadium for the first time since Hernandez’s arrest.

In the mean time, a judge unsealed three of four Connecticut search warrants from the investigation into Lloyd’s death. The warrants were used to search the former Patriot’s uncle’s home, an apartment and a rental car police say was used by Wallace and Ortiz the day after the shooting.

The items collected from the home last month include Correction Department documents linked to Ortiz and Wallace, a plastic gun box and two boxes of .38-caliber ammunition.

According to the police, Lloyd was shot with a .45-caliber gun.
