New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez has been charged with last week’s murder of Odin Lloyd, 27, a semi-professional football player!
Lloyd was found dead June 17 in an industrial park near former University of Florida star Hernandez’ North Attleborough, Mass., home.
Hernandez pleaded not guilty to that charge and to five other gun-related charges.
Hernandez was arraigned while dressed in the red gym shorts and a white tee he wore when cops picked him up at home this morning.
Less than two hours after his arrest, the Patriots announced they had released Hernandez from his $40 million contract.
Hernandez allegedly shot another man in Riviera Beach in February. The alleged victim, however, refused to cooperate with detectives with the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office.
