Former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez has been found guilty of first-degree murder after a lengthy trial in Fall River, Massachusetts.
Hernandez, 25, was charged with killing Odin Lloyd, 27, on June 17, 2013. Lloyd, who was dating the sister of Hernandez’s fiancee, was found shot to death in an abandoned industrial yard.
Prosecutors had alleged that Hernandez and two other men picked up Lloyd from his house and brought him to the industrial park near the Patriots’ Gillette Stadium, about a mile from Hernandez’s home.
Hernandez had pleaded not guilty.
The verdict comes after weeks of testimony from multiple witnesses, including Patriots’ owner Robert Kraft and Herandez’s fiancee, Shayanna Jenkins.
