(BOSTON) – On Tuesday 22 July, former NFL player, Aaron Hernandez, is expected back in Bristol County Superior Court in Fall River, Massachusetts, USA, on being charged with the murder of semi-professional American football player, Odin Lloyd.
Earlier, on Monday, a hearing was motioned with protesting attorneys who were against the live broadcast of private conversations between Hernandez and his lawyers, since they believed that it was a clear violation of court rules. Attorney James Sultan urges the court to “take prompt action” regarding this.
The Herald reports Judge Susan Garsh in favor of confiscation of the surveillance system whereby she states that it “was justified by the likelihood that it would reveal the identities of the individuals with Hernandez and Lloyd’ in the hours before the shooting”.
Previously, a hearing took place on July 9 whereby Hernandez became the alleged shooter of two men in 2012 after a dispute in a Boston nightclub, along with being Lloyd’s supposed murderer.
Lloyd’s body was found near Hernandez’s North Attenborough home in June 2013. However, Hernandez has pleaded not guilty to this murder, as well as the Boston nightclub quarrel.
