Aaron Hernandez, Patriots Tight End, Charged With Murder
After days of investigation and suspicion, police have arrested New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez. Hernandez has been charged with murder in the death of an acquaintance, Odin Lloyd, whose body was found near Hernandez’s home, more than a week ago.
Hernandez is being held without bail, and the Patriots have cut the one-time star from their roster.
