Did Aaron Hernandez Execute Odin Lloyd?

Fireworks lit up the Attleboro District Court when the prosecutor claimed that former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez executed his friend, Odin Lloyd.  The former tight end, Aaron Hernandez, was arraigned on a charge of murder and five assorted counts of firearm possession. Hernandez pleaded not guilty to all counts.

Hernandez "orchestrated the execution," the prosecutor said while arguing that Hernandez should be held without bail. Lloyd was shot three times soon after getting out of the car, then two fatal shots were fired through his chest while he was lying on the ground. Keys to a rental vehicle belonging to Hernandez were allegedly found on Lloyd. 45 caliber shells from a semi-automatic weapon were recovered.

Surveillance footage from 14 cameras in and around Hernandez's home may show critical evidence. However, 6-8 hours of footage from around the time of the murder are allegedly missing. Allegedly there are text messages from Hernandez to Lloyd and to two other persons of interest on the night Lloyd was killed. The prosecutor claims he has a tape of Hernandez, with a firearm, saying "You can't trust anyone anymore" before driving to pick up Lloyd. The couple allegedly stopped at a gas station to pick up "blue cotton candy Bubblicious gum and Black & Mild cigars, which can be used as rolling papers for marijuana. Apparently Hernandez and another man returned to Hernandez's house. Surveillance cameras allegedly show someone carrying a gun into the house.
The judge has ordered Hernandez jailed without bail until his next court date on July 24.  Hernandez is to be presumed innocent unless otherwise proven in a court of law.

Patriots cut him? What happened top innocent until proven guilty?

Do NFL teams not have to follow the FEDERAL RULES?

"What happened top innocent until proven guilty?"
...I was thinking the same thing but apparently Hernandez has been involved with other gun related violence and the Pat's stuck up for him. I think they are just fed up with him.

They are saying Hernandez may be involved with a previous double murder...and this murder could be blackmail motivated.

If true,this guy is a murderer first and a player second and should receive NO special privileges. Also means he got away with murder before and feels he can now shoot who ever he wants.

His position as a popular, rich, NFL player may have contributed to his feelings of superiority, and untouchable. O.J.

Heck yes, why pay for his jail house stay? Speedy trial seems in order. Kickoff in a few short weeks and Brady needs a target to throw to?
